    Exclamation welso in bad shape

    today i noticed my welso was very shrunken up and spitting stuff out of its mouths...does anyone have any clues to what can cause this to happen?
    It takes a long long time to build a coral reef. Step by step the reefs survive on partnerships. And the most important partners are you and I.

    It could just be pooping like Jolson said. Did you feed it lately? If you're not seeing skeleton, that's a good sign. A picture would be helpful.

    Mouths closing afterwards is a good sign. Probly just expelling waste, as mentioned before.

    well it actually is returning to its normal state now, it just freaked me out because it shrunk up SO much and all that stuff was coming out...i guess it was just waste, thanks for the help guys.
