    Might just be shedding. Id watch it closely for a few days and see if it shows signs of improvement.

    I'me trying to get rid of the aiptasia but thusfare noting seems to work so i'me wating for them to get a bit biger and then inject them with lemon juice.

    Would the aiptasia peraps case the pincushion to do what it is doing at the moment?

    I hope its just sheding.

    The aiptasia may or may not be the cause, but it certainly isnt helping matters. Id try and get rid of it right away to aid the pincushion's recovery
