Torch Coral ?

I have a torch coral that I don't think is doing well. One of his mouths is extended, like he's regurgatated his stomach. Is this a sign of any particular symptom? All in all he's looks very healthy, just the problem mentioned above. I've also tried to feed it with no luck, nothing seems to stick to the tentacles.

Here is a pic, very bubbly and healthy looking. I don't have a pic of the extended mouth.

My torch looks TOTALLY different. Is that a pic of it when it is "closed up". Mine always has long sweepers and doesn't have the bubble look. Hey, maybe I'll learn something tagging along on this thread.

Are you sure that is a torch. It looks more like a Rose bubble to me. I'm not to sure though, it doesn't look like any torch I have seen though. If it is a torch, I wouldn't feed it. I never feed mine.

I've seen one like that. What do you have for light and flow? Low light and flow? VHO's? Very clean water?
