Kenya tree behavior
I recently bought a Kenya tree for my nano tank. Sometimes it draws it's "limbs" up instead of being fully extended. Is this normal or is it always a sign of distress?

That's normal behavior. They shrink up and look horrible for a couple of days, then look great once they expand.

Mine does this also. I have a few babies from my frags (the amount of frags has tripled in ~2-3 months) and some shrivel more than others but after a day or two they recoop and open up.

That is what mine does.

How about this?
The base or the stalk is turning black; however, the top is fully expanded and looks better than it ever has? Also it is leaning over?

I thought i heard that this is what happens when they are getting ready to move to another location in the tank.
Anyone heard of that?

:( :confused:
