toadstool leather

Hi all
can anyone offer some advise on my toadstool coral
it is in the aquarium a couple of months now, but over the last couple of weeks
it had been spending more and more time closed up on wednesday it closed off and has not opened since
i know this can be normal but just hoped to get a second opinion as i had one before and it done the same and died
water parameters seem ok
temp 26deg / salinity 34ppt / KH 8 / PH 8.2 / NH4 <0.25 / NO2 <0.01 / NO3 <0.5
PO4 <0.02 / Ca 440 / mag 1260 /

any advise at all apprecieated :D
thanks

Toadstools do this on a regular basis. Slight touch from a hand or a fish and most will close up sometimes for days on end. Have about ten in my own tank and very rare that they are all open at the same time..

yeah that is waht i reckon (hope) alright
just that the last one did die and caused a lot of problems with the tank
set it back quite a bit
so over cautious now

but i will keep close eye

thanks
