florida condy exhibiting odd behavior

I have had my Florida Condy for about two weeks. The other day all the tenacles were gone as if sucked into his body. Then he came back out. But today, he looks as if he is deflated. Actually looks like all of his tenacles have lost its air. The Condy is usually a pinkish white color. The deflated tenacles are greenish purple. Is this usual behavior or is he sick?
Sorry I do not have a picture.

Yesterday when I fed him, he looked glorious. His tenacles were floating and stretched out as proud as a peacock.

Water quality is fine :
Ph 8.2
ammonia 0
NO2 0
NO3 less than 10
CA3 240

Anemones will sometimes close/shrink up when stressed. They also will do it while expelling wastes. If only expelling wastes, it shouldn't last to long and he'll be back to normal. When you fed him, did he take the food eagerly? What did you feed him? How is he looking now?

If you are meaning calcium here than you`ll want to raise this. Alot of times it can be done by just doing frequent PWC`s. If not then you`ll need to check into supplementing for it but try the PWC first. Here is an article that will explain it.
