Hi all,
I recently purchased a candy cane coral from my LFS. It’s been about 2 weeks and at times the coral is open, but I’d say that a majority of that time he’s kinda lopsided like the picture shows. Is this an indicator of too much flow? The rest of my corals seem happy

Also is that a vermetid snail I see on the base of the skeleton
Sorry for the multiple reaper93 copy/pasted… still learning. Anyways, thanks for calling this out. I haven’t seen them in person so I guess it didn’t register as a possibility. I use a coral dip on all corals before adding, and maybe it died off? It’s never grown,etc. I pulled it off to be safe.
