Yesterday my elegance looked like this. It closed up last night as per usual and receded back into its base but hasn't opened up again this morning. All my parameters are solid and nothing out of the ordinary. Any ideas? Do elegance corals just throw a wobbly every so often or is it dying? Can I identify the root cause? Please help meh!

What are the parameters? Not everyone agrees on what's 'okay' 🙂

I have exactly the same problem so I hope you don’t mind me checking out the responses here in case someone can come up with something. Mine was fine too and extending about 30cm wide, now it’s less than a quarter of that. I’m worried I’ve got a gall crab or something nasty hiding somewhere.

Since come alright! Turns out it was splitting and creating a second mouth for itself!
