    Hi all,

    I noticed that my torch coral looks a little different recently - I would say it looks a little "flat". Notice that the "tentacles" are looking a little bit "pap" (see pics attached) and they are also getting long and thin towards the ends and one or two have broken off.

    Is this normal ?
    Is there a know cause (if not normal) ?
    What should I do (if not normal) ?

    Thanks
    Vic

    How is the flow over the torch? Mine did the same when the flow was a bit strong

    A little strong (I suppose). I moved it about 3 weeks ago to this location and it definitely has stronger flow than it's old spot
