Please help trachyphillia not opening up

Hey whats going on I had this thrachyphillia for about a year now frequent healthy water changes about 30% once a week I took out the coral and through it in a deworming tank kept it there for about an hour placed it back in my main tank and it took a week to open up but everything was fine. About a month later i through all my coral into the deworming tank just to be safe and my trachyphillia hasn't opened up ever since. I put it up higher to get more lighting but that didn't help I fed it several times that didn't seem to do much either please helphere are some befor and afters .

Not happy. Fish picking on it? My hippo loves to pick on my Welso which can close for a day or so but reopens. At 18 inches down on rocks. Does eat Brightwell microvore and zooplankton They all do

Hey, so I only feed it reef roids just as I do with all my other coral. The tangs don't pick on it. It closed up after the 2 time I dewormed it I put it back in my tank closed and it never reopened and it seems like it is dying

You should really feed it meaty foods, like pieces of shrimp, clam, or silver sides.

Evidently you have stressed the coral out pretty bad. At this point you should just leave it alone on the sand and give it time to settle in and hopefully it will reopen.

I would put it in a shaded low light\flow area and let it recover.

I guess my question is why it needed deworming? Twice?

I have a wellso that was closed for over a month and was sure it was dead. So i placed in a shaded and low flow area, just as bonomo suggested, and to my surprise it actually recovered.

What do you mean by deworming? What worms are you trying to get rid of?

The first time I dewormed only the coral on its own... then I dewormed the tank
