are you looking at with the lights off? I have a frogspawn and its tentacles darken up quite a bit when retracted but when they are out they are fine. You havent noticed and browning of them during the day have you? like a jelly or slimy brown covering over them? i not and they look fine with the lights on I wouldnt worry about it. I guess with that long tent sucked up into a small space, it wont be as light as with it fully extended. thats my opinion but lets see what the pros have say

yup, as long as it looks healthy, and is extended properly, i wouldn't be worried about it.
