OK I just bought it the other day it looks like its doing well the only thing that has me worried is that during the day. it will retract itself upwards and almost look like its inflating the polyps come out then after a few hours go back in the leather shrinks down for like an hour then blows up again and the polyps come out again. at night when the lights are off it and my mushroom corals look like they deflate and shrivle up. I'm just wondering if this is normal behavior. if anyone has any advice please let me know thanks a bunch

they will inflate and deflate also it could be changing size because different corals will feed at different times. they also deflate when the lights go out.

if a fish swims by and brushes up against it or a snail crawls over it will close up too.
