I recently bought a condy (for $5.00) at the lfs
. It was doing good untill this eve. I fed it a piece of cooked thawed shrimp. I then turned out the lights and headed to bed. Well I couldn't sleep so I decided to go watch the fish for awhile. (that usually relaxes me so I can sleep). I noticed that the condy was all drawn in and looked dead. I did some research and seen that it is normal to withdraw. I just wanted to make sure that it looks ok and it's not dying.
