And just now they have closed up? I would look to the water parameters then. Perhaps do a water change.

Mine closes up all the time and then reopens. I just thought that was normal. I have a few hermit crabs and when they get close, the gsp just gets pissed. Good luck. Keep us posted.

Mine usually act like that in the morning and slowly open after lights come on

Have you done a water change or two yet? I've kept plenty of GSP in the past and I don't recall it closing up unless there was something specifically bothering it, and definitely not for 5 days.

Haven't done one In about a month or so, if I do a water change, what should I use to refill it?

if you do a water change you replace saltwater with saltwater. Only topping off the tank would utilize non-saltwater.

Is that a trick question?

What do you mean what do you use to refill it? Can you please clarify?

IMHO......a month without a water change is waaaaayyy to long. Lots of people do once a week (including myself) and some do every other week, but I haven't heard of someone doing a water change "once a month or so". Maybe some do but that can't be good for the livestock.

Do you track calcium or mag levels? I can tell you that my corals look much fuller and happier the day after my weekly pwc.

I think mr. X is right......you need to perform a pwc and at least do them every other week
