    It's a Ricordia and shouldn't require feeding. This may be the issue if you are firing food at its mouth. Leave it alone and if it gets worse maybe frag off some healthy tissue, Tidal Gardens has a YouTube video on how to do this.

    Oh ok, this did actually happen the day after i did feed it for the first time using feeding tube This morning the white part looks smaller is this a good sign?. I hoping this will recover as it was doing so well before I stupidly fed it.
