I just bought a Condy yesterday. I purchased this particular one because it was the most beautiful one in the tank at the LFS
. Very healthy looking..Fully extended etc. Well, I know that under stress, they deflate and shrink up for a little while. Anyways, I brought it home, acclimated it for 45 min, placed it in the tank and about an hour and a half later, it was absolutely beautiful again. This morning, in the dark, I used my red light to check on it and it was shriveled up again and funky looking. I didn't have time to do any further investigating, as I had to go to work. I guess my question is, do they do this as a normality at night?
I am scared that I spent money unwisely and should not be into anenomes. Seems they are terrible additions to me.
I checked my water params last night just after placing it in the tank and they are good.
water is now crystal clear.
