duncan trouble

Hope someone can help

Had a duncan in the tank for several months. doing extremly well, open and growing, new heads etc. It would take mysis if fed directly and all looking good.
went away for a day and then noticed that it was closed. it opened slightly the next day and fed but has since remained closed or at least anytime I look.
all other corals and fish looking good and open. Nems also fully open and showing their bubble tips.

I did notice my ebli angel taking a nip at other button corals so wondering could he also be harassing the duncans and now they are staying shut out of his way

or could it be something else

I had flatworm on mine and it wouldn't open until I blew a few off and now we are back to normal. Worth a try in case fish ain't guilty.

he is about middle depth in the tank. Seemed to like the flow. still think the fish is the culprit but need to catch him in the act.
Anyone want an ebli ? :x

He's on probation after a stern warning. If he is found guilty you have first dibs :lol:
