dying duncan

Thanksgiving day I removed a bunch of xenia from one of my rocks. Most were on old clam shells and dead pieces of coral etc. But I went crazy and cut a lot of them off also. That afternoon I changed 35 gal of water in a 230 gal. tank and replaced the carbon. The next day my duncan coral (duncanopsammia axifuga) has started shrinking and has not gotten any better but everything else near the xenia is fine. Could the xenia removal cause this?

I've not heard of xenia causing that type of problem.

Possibly it just got ticked off if you were working around it.

The other thing I would do is check parameters after the water change,
