Yesterday he looked like this:


Today this:


Summary:
Parameters are good, zeros across the board, save for phosphates which im am working on minimizing.

Did a 5 gallon change from my brand new home RODI unit yesterday (fully flushed, 0 TDS)

I fed him squid (frozen > thawed in tank water) just now to see if he would eat, he grabbed at it like usual.

THanks!

Is he better now? I can't see anything wrong from the picture. They do deflate ones in a while to exchange water, expel waists, etc. Usually the more often you feed it, the more it does it. When water chemistry changed it can do it as well. Expelling waists does not last long. It should get better within a day or two at most.

Sincethe photos where uploaded hes retreated further and further into the rock. I can only see a few tentacles now. test came back all in the normal range save ammonia (?) came back at .50. Nitrate and nitrite are nearly 0. Cant figure it out. Threw some ammo lock in and a 5 gallon change in progress as soon as my water warms up enough.
