    Hi all,

    My pin cushion is not opening completely. See pic

    Everything else is fine. No changes to tank.

    Any advice ?

    Looks like something is harassing it. What corals are near it?

    They are known to sulk, sometimes for extended periods, then all of a sudden they'll be fine again. Just monitor it, make sure there are no corals with sweeper tentacles in close vicinity.

    Thanks for the Info. Nothing with tentacles close by.

    So my luck I ended up with a female pin cushion

    Was the flow pump near it added recently?
