Default Sick Star Polyp

I am new to saltwater aquariums. I purchased a Star Polyp about a week ago, and it was doing wonderful. Then I changed 1/2 of my water and now it looks "dead." I have attached some pictures for reference. Any help would be appreciated.

Check your water parameters. Star Polyps are VERY hardy. I am annoyed at mine actually they grow too much. Maybe move them somewhere else in your tank where there is less current or something... I wouldn't worry you would be amazed what those things can handle. Just make sure you keep an eye on your test kits.
