my RBTA deflates every night. please help!


New member
my RBTA looks great during the day and i feed it every few days. but evry night it deflates and droops. sometimes i think it's dead but about a half hour after i turn my lights on it opens up and looks great again. any ideas why it's doing this? it looks healthy.

Its fine, nothing to worry about. During the day they perk up to grab as much light as they can for light powered processes, but during the night, why waste the energy being all puffed up if there is no light...

I second this comment.
I would try either dosing kalk at night or on a continuous basis with a LiterMeter or other similar device.
