Weird Anemone Behavior

Hi Have a purple tip condy. It has been pulling all of it's tentacles into it's foot until it looks like an oblong pink balloon. Has anyone ever heard of this behavior?

That sounds like resting behavior. Does it do this during the day? Or just at night?

This would be common behavior at night and nothing to be concerned about. During the day however, could mean something is stressing or irritating it. Can you think of anything consistant with this behavior? Feeding time? What are it's neighbors?

Crickey!

That's over 7 wpg.

Light most CERTAINLY isn't your issue. How are your nitrates?
