Hey everyone, I have this big green haddoni that is shriveled up underneath her rock. Have had her about 3 months without issues. Recently I started noticing cyano in a small spot right near her but only in the mornings. just tested my water and nothing jumps out at me as wrong. I did feed her a giant meal on Friday last week. First image is of the bubble tip today, 2nd is of her today, 3rd is of her about two weeks ago. Lights go off in about 1.5 hours. Water parameters below, I am also using carbon and GFO in sump, both have not been changed for about 3-4 weeks, any ideas?

I have a giant carpet (10-12" across). Last time I saw it curl up was when it let out a big nem poop. Outside of that, nems do whatever they want. Just because it was fine for 3 months doesn't mean it's not going to move.
Any chance the flow in that area changed? Moved some rocks or a powerhead?

No, nothing has changed, my vortechs settings haven’t even changed. I was thinking it could just be a huge poop. I checked back on it this morning and it looks like normal. Fingers crossed that is all it is
