I'm no expert, but the BTA looks fine to me. It's not bleached at all. As long as its not constantly wandering around, it's probably happy.

It looks fine to me too. How much flow you have going on? Didn't see any power heads or circulators in the tank.

Will have to disagree on this. I have 3 (oldest one for 7 years) and they all set less than a couple of inches from each other. 2 are plump and short and one is stretched out and stringy. All 3 set under 5 inches under 2/250 MH. Exact same conditions and placement in tank. The 2 fat ones are from a split 3 years ago, so just like people I think it is genetics.

Here are my RBTA and obta under LEDs...

Also have a LTA and condy... Most of the time they are stringy and don't stretch up. Sometimes they bubble... Just a reference for you.

Looks good . The one at the lfs has been in the tank since the late 80s from what they tell me as well as the clowns that host it.they are also the biggest clowns that I have personaly seen... I will have to stop in and get some pics.

Looks nice. It's at the top of the reef next to his trumpets where they are getting maximum light.
