Hi I have a Pink Tip Nem in my setup that is doing fine after reading most of the articles on this website however............ it has moved a round little but now settled, been feeding full of colour and only just recently been acting a little strange......... she will constantly deflate and completely turn in herself day and night before fully inflating again.

Is the normal or is she in trouble?

She has no damage, feeding good and water params are spot on. Any advice is welcomed.

they do deflate but it shouldnt happen too often. how long have you had it? as it may still be getting used to the water conditions.

also how old is the tank as they like mature, stable water?

Can I ask what you are feeding her?
She needs fish to survive.
Anything else is just a treat and not much more.
I have 6 sugar gliders,4mini horses ,4 SW tanks and two great dogs and two cats
that are identical brothers.
40 acres of woods and ponds in East Texas.
I love to garden to.

I agree with karen, they do need a substantial and nutritious source of food to really do well, but i have been trying out a new anemone feeding regime at my last place of work using small balls (about 1- 1.5 cm across) of new era marine pellets . These generated (it seems) good growth and much less waste than fish and triggered a feeding response every time!

Might be worth a go
