Rose bulb keeping , questions?

Well the local shop dropped there price to $50.So I thought what the hell. Anyway in there tank it was full streched out bulbs looked good.Brought it home and it stayed open the whole nite.Then this morning I went to check it out and it was all scrunched up.

Is it just adjusting maybe, does anyone elses still do this even after being in the tank for a few months or more??

My curly cue does it every now and then ,but most days it is out.I just dont know if it is normal or it is having problems in the spot I pt it in.

Thanx

Very common From my experience they close up in the late evening and reopen a few hours after the lights come on or shortly before..

I have had mine for about 2 months and it continues to do this but It all varies.. Usually from what I have noticed If its fed it will close up that night and Poop then be back open the next day.. I very rarely feed mine and usually when I do its just for Kicks..

IMO if its opening up daily and not moving all over the place and looks normal when it opens up then I am not worring... You'll go Grey real quick LOL..
