I have a Yuma Frag for 10 days now, it is starting to fall apart.

I read other post about about cutting off a small piece for it to regrow.
Any specific details on this? the mouth is not needed to grow into a new one?
does it cut like a mushroom or is it mainly skelaton? or just leave it alone.

It has been on the sandbed between rocks and gets decent light.
I try and not to disturb it.

It is a pretty one and I hope I don't lose it

Is it shriveling up? Almost looms like more light is needed.

The glowing parts 'beads' are falling off

It shrivals up at night when lights are out
Opens back up when lights on

The mouth is wide open as of late

The 2 pics attached is 10 days apart

Yumas have always been incredibly difficult for me to keep. I'll think I'm out of the woods and things are looking good and then they always die. If someone has the secret to keeping them alive I'd sure like to know.

I have been able to keep mine in the sand bed, 24" deep under a kessil a150 without any issues

I caught my peppermint shrimp eating my yuma. Took the shrimp out and the yuma is growing back. Maybe something is picking at it?

My luck has been putting those bad boys in the shade under a rock and letting them slowly move to wherever they want. Honestly the "decent light" has always been what melted my yumas but letting them go where they want they get big and fat and make mini yumas for ya. Well in my experience anyways...

I will put in under a rock. I think it's on its way out any way, can't hurt.

they are photosynthetic, need some light?

In my experience they will move into the amount of light they like and they can survive on the reflective non direct light till they are in a happy spot.
