Help: Whats going on with my Wellso?

My wellso hasn't been full and happy like it used to. Parameters seem ok and weekly water changes. Color still looks ok, just all shrived up. Any ideas?

Not in a real flawy area. The skin has been looking not so great I guess, but I wouldn't describe it as sloughing. I Almost looks like a "skinny kid" that hasn't eaten in days. I can see the skeletal structure in detail. All the other corals seem fine except a group of mushrooms that haven't looked great in the last couple days. Not really sure whats going on with it

What is your livestock list? When you say your params are Ok , do you know what your alk fluctuates during the week? How often do you feed? Beautiful coloration, by the way

I caught my blue hippo waking up one morning and she would deliberatly pic at it once everyday and it seemed to be enough to anger it and it would totally suck its self in like yours. This went on for a couple months until I finally caught that fish in action. It was part of her morning routine! Once I took her out it puffed up. But a year later it just stared to receed slowly until it was gone. I now test for ALK as I found out mine has been LOW and this could have also contributed to its slow demise. Yours is really pretty I hope it puffs up! And I fed my wellso's brine shrimp and other meaty foods.
