    Are you showing it's dropped crown?
    I had one do that and it stayed in the tube for a month when I finally decided it was dead and went to take it out it moved in its tube so I moved it. About a week later it started to regrow it's crown, it lived for almost another year after that.

    Hi guys. Thanks for taking the time to read and reply.

    You can see the tube to it's left. And yes I think the crown dropped or something. The crown somehow looks like it's missing some fine hair/feathers? It looks more so like a few tiny sticks than a real feather.

    So it's a possibility that it's still alive and I should leave it alone?

    :(

    Thank you. I will decrease the flow and hope for the best. Might be stress, I did some cleaning yesterday after leaving some seaweed while I was away for the clown and woke up today with the crown on the ground.

    Thanks again all!
