He has always had a good feeding response, looks a little stressed. I have had him for 6 months and fed him 2 days ago. Is this a really bad sign?

He ate 2 days ago and your trying to feed him again? It sounds like you may be overfeeding.

Its pretty hard to overfeed a haddoni carpet. If it were me, I would change my carbon and do a water change.

I agree with phender the carpets are difficult to over feed within reason. Mine gets fed daily as I want it to grow fast and it swallows within seconds I feed squid and sushi grade tuna soaked in vits about a quarter to half inch square (not cube) that is 18th inch thick My carpet is 4 inches in diameter.
Has it eaten anthing really big lately??

2 Weeks ago He caught a damsel, This is a very small carpet so it was A big meal for him. He threw it back up. I also had a gigantea die after a month in the tank, all values are in place but a few tentacles did sting the haddoni when they detached.
