Do encrusting gorgonians (briareum) sometimes keep their polyps in(not extended)?

I have a frag of briareum in my tank for over two months and it was always extending it's polyps, even starting to develop more color(similar look to gsp), i went away for one weekend, and they are all not extending, plus it looks like lots of black dots(bumps) where the polyps used to extend from. Is my gorgonian sick?

My EG is real temperamental. The polyps didn't open for 4 days after I added it. After a water change they "disappear" for a day or so. There seems to be a dearth of other EG keepers on this site and so I continue to wonder if this is considered to be normal behavior for this species.

I wonder about those black dots ... my toadstool leather gets them on ocassion after my porcelain crab has tried to make a home atop the stool.
