    no nothings change in thank, did a water change a few day ago but this started before i did it . The mouths have white around them but it waxes and wanes on looking pretty good and shriveled/ dying Here another photo 3 hours after the first and its looking better and i did nothing to it.... could there be chemical warfare with the sponge bc honestly this never happened until that sponge showed up

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    I think it's possible it just normal water exchange, expanding and contracting. I doubt the sponge is an issue. LPS can act this way after water changes.

    No issues here- LPS sometimes "poop" and just stay contracted for long periods of time. Unless there has been a parameter swing or a change in lighting there is nothing to worry about
