here is the deal.. My finger like anemone shrink at night when I turn off all the light. DOes it shrink because I turn off all the light? or does it shrink because it is at night? I am running a night glo and a floresence light. here is some idiotic question. but I have to ask anyways... DOes the Floresence light act as a good source of light for coral and anemone? SHould I leave my night glow on at night? SHould I turn off all the light when I sleep at night? WHy does my anemone shrink at night?

THank you for helping me out guys..

Your anemone is perfectly fine, all anemone's shrink like that at night, I guess that's just how they sleep, mine also does that, you don't see any of his tentacles and when you look closely it looks like his tentacles are inside him. Don't worry, your anemone is fine

I don't have any anemomes but corals do the same thing. At night with the lights off they shrivel up but bloom back out with the light.
