Not familiar with what you are describing. Can you post a picture?

I've read elsewhere that it is a symptom of excess lighting. However, I've had a colony of magicians do the same thing intermittently where, in the same spot they've been for almost two years, they have also "reached" for light. Zoas can be weird I guess is what I have to offer. Just keep an eye on them and if this umbrella look doesn't change and the colony appears to diminish maybe move them a bit then
