Acan dying?

Can you take a look at the picture and tell me what might be happening with this Acan? Params are good, I have a few other mushrooms and corals doing great and a few fish.

Its definitely receding into itself, usually a sign of a param issue but if all has been stable maybe something too close to it that it does not like or possible starvation if its not fed at least once a week. Acans are real food pigs & love to eat daily like Blastos. Its not a lighting issue have you kept CAL, MAG & ALK all at a slightly elevated lvl they like their minerals for growing too so REEF mineral lvls is a must can you show your params maybe that might help?

Montipora Digitas, Cyphastrea, Blastos, different Leptoseris, Green Stylo, GSP, gorgonions, Ricordea mushrooms, psammocoras, Birdsnest coral, Clownfish, Watchman goby, Royal gamma, cardinalfish.

Feed it and make sure to keep your Alk on the higher side of the numbers. Like said above, they love to eat. Feed daily if you can or every other day.
