Zoo Problems?

I came in this morning to find one of my two colony of zoos looking funky.

The colony in question sits right next to another...

The pics are 3 of 5 polyps that look like this...any clue as to what might have happened?

The colony next to it is perfectly fine.

Water:

Temp - 79 F
SG - 1.025
Ammonia - 0
Nitrite - 0
Nitrate - <10
Phos - 0
Alk - 9 dKH
Ca - 430ppm
pH- 8.3

I think he is talking about the three closed stalks at the top...?

Ohhh... those little 'nubbins!

I agree with whoever mentioned the feather duster. If the "feathers" are waving in the current, it looks like they could tough. Constant touching probably doesn't make those individual polyps happy, but I wouldn't think it would be a major concern. They just might shrivel up and go away, but it shouldn't effect the whole colony.

I think the Flame Angel was nipping at them... they still have not opened back up.
I caught him practically eating my xenia. Had to get rid of him.

See Coral Nipper thread in reef aquaria forum.

It's hit or miss with the angels. Hopefully that was it and now since you've gotten rid of it the zoo will re-open.
