Inside out Zoa Question


I have a zoanthid question. Some of my zoas appear to have turned inside out. Instead of the polyps making little flowers shapes, the skirts have curved down to form mushroom shapes out of the polyps.

Any idea what causes this, and will they go back to normal?

Thanks,
Chad

a pic would help, but they might be stretching out to get their mouth up higher to get some food, do you have any cyclops? try a light dusting and see if they eat. other wise, it might just be the way those zoa's wanna act. they are really weird creatures.

Here is a pic. The PPE's on the left are curved down to form sort of a bullet shape if that makes sense.

i have some Palythoas that do that from time to time, and they are ALWAYS muliplying, so i guess they are fine.
