    All of my acans' tissue has been retracted for the past two days - all acans at the same time and only the acans - without any change in lighting or water parameters and I am wondering if it could be due to soft coral chemical warfare. Does anyone have any thoughts or references on the subject? Any help greatly appreciated!

    Could be chemical warfare.

    What else is in the tank? Do you run carbon?
