Toadstool problems

For the past few weeks or so my toadstool has looked "cupped" it's used to open up great. Does anybody have any idea why it would be like this? All params are great lights are 6 t5ho, coral is near middle of the tank.

Is there anything on top of it irritating it? Mine cup like that when a crab walks across the top. Other possibility is flow. Has it changed? They love a lot of flow and could be adjusting to the flow in your tank.

I moved him up off the sand bed, he also gets more flow now. There is an mp40 about 8" about him, not direct flow though.

I dont mean to change the subject but what kind of plant is that behind the toadstool.
How long has the toad been in this tank? Maybe try moving her down the column. Check your heater

That's caulerpa, and I've had the toadstool about 7 months. Problem with moving him down is that I have zero room in the sand for anything, if you look at my reef forum my 45 is pretty packed.

I do weekly water changes with reef crystals they should be fine, I don't have anything outside of normal test so I only dose to keep up my calcium and ph.

What corals do you have and what do you have to dose?
