Deflating torch coral

I have a torch coral that is normaly full and blowing every where. came home lastnight and it seemed to be a bit bleached on the ends and was slightly deflated. i did a 10g water change lastnight and this morning its still the same.. its retracted slighty and seems to not be full. my ammoina was a tad high but everything else seems to be in check.. i have been cuting back on the light due to a small algae problem thats now under control. could it just be mad about the light? also the nem that follows it around the tank is a tiny bit bleached too. i been feeding it and i target fed the torch lastnight..

It might not be happy due to all the moving around we have told you to do....

Are you running carbon in the tank? You might have a slight chemical war going on (I just had that happen the other week between a kenya tree and donut coral).

Matt,

How close are the tentacles to rock/corals? I've had a torch retract tentacles from being to close to a rock with zoos on it before. It was only one of 4 heads that retracted, but it was the one closest to the rock with zoas. I'm not sure if it was the rock or the zoas that were irritating it.

Do you think the nem is annoying it? i just looked at it and the nem has moved down from it..

Posted a better Pic. the zoom iphone app doesnt work as good as the reg cam app. The nem is the quarter sized round thing under and to the left of it.

The problem is it never did that before not like that. It's looks very bad at night vs the day. And even in the day it's not as full as it was before. It's alot smaller than it used to be.

Man, if your ammonia is at .25, I would be doing heavy water changes every day until they are at 0. I am thinking that you may have stirred up the sand bed? I did that a while back and started a cycle. I did daily 25% changes until it was gone. Ammonia is deadly in your tank. I lost a few fish during mine.
