Hey guys I had a bubble coral in my 12g nano that was thriving. It was a favorite so I moved it to my 45g and it hasn’t been doing so hot. Flow is about the same and lighting is much better. These are pics from tonight. It’s been in this tank for about 2 weeks. It’s nowhere near as inflated and seems to be sagging exposing the top. Any suggestions?

Honestly it looks happy. When they open up big they can’t hold it all up so it will droop a bit, totally normal. As long as the skeleton isn’t punctured through it should be fine. The skeletons are quite sharp especially when they are out of the water, so it’s possible it could have injured itself when you moved tanks. If that did happen you would definitely tell as it would be deflated for a period of time until it heals. Mine has gone through this a few times throughout the years. But like I said it looks happy so I doubt anything bad happened. Hope that helps.

Thanks! This is what it used to look like which is why I thought something was wrong. I was not aware the skeletons were sharp and could puncture it so that is very likely. I’ll just keep an eye on it if you think it looks happy. I just don’t want to lose it it’s an awesome piece. IMG_5724.jpg
