scrolling turbinaria help?

I have had my scroll coral (Scrolling Turbinaria) for about 4 months now...it has been doing amazing up until a couple of days ago when i noticed that the polyps haven't been opening up to much or not at all....i feed it cyclopeeze about twice a week. My lighting is 150W metal halide and the coral is positioned about 8 inches away from the light. I am not exactly sure what may be going on...i thought that this thing would never give me any problems.

Thanks,

Dave

arch, the only help I can offer is to leave it alone. I've had mine for 6+ years. It's gone from 2 1/2" to the size of a basketball. I've never spot fed it a thing. It's always been in low light and low to moderate flow. It goes through times when it doesn't show any PE for weeks on end, then starts all over again. Never has any during the day. Only after lights out.

I need to fix the links to the pics, but down towards the bottom of the page

and here you can see it in may of 05


No current picture I'm afraid
