Hi, i recently bought 3 condy nems and the are doing great, they are eating, moving around and opening but at night when the lights go off the get huge, like three times the normal size I bought them at the store and the size they are on the day time. Why is this ? In the pic they are normal size, at night when tank lights are off but the house lights are on is when the growing comes

They respond to light as most anemones and common with condy and sebae to inflate when light diminishes

Mine did the same when I had one, I suppose it’s similar to when Acans expose their stinging tentacles or when torches release sweeper tentacles at Night. A type of protection to deal with different predators at Night... there’s nothing to worry about though ;Happy
