I've had this candy cane for 2 weeks today and its been doing awesome been inflated good color eating like a champ and fully expanded its tentacles at night but today its deflated...is it normal for them to deflate occasionally???

Can you post a photo or two? I have a candy cane that is doing so-so and maybe we can learn together.

I would make sure you havent had any swings in water params and that nothing has bothered it.

Parameters are the same from when it was flated around 2 am and when i got up at 11am...when i went to bed its tentacles were fully extended...my nitrates and phospates are ultra low im trying to raise them but havent been to so far even with extra feeding...the other candy cane is 4-5 inches below it and its fine

Only thing i can see thats did is theres a v snail on the base of it ( could be some thing else but its a very small tube)

As long as its not getting too much flow or light could just be annoyed temporarily.

I would just watch it to see if it gets any worse

If theres another candy cane doing fine then its not water params. I think that something could have annoyed it or its getting too much light.

I would wait and see what it looks like tomorow, if your water params are good then i wouldnt worry too much could be something messing with it like a hermit passing by my hermit does that to my zoa garden
