Mine decided to move and went further up and on the side or a rock now.

I need to redo my scape also. Don't have much room on the sand bed anymore because of the rock.

Yea that's the problem I'm running into. I have like no room for any of the SPS to put in a nice place so they aren't in front of the mp10. I literally want to do 3 bigger rocks kind of like this guy did on another forum. Really love this tank!

That is a nice tank, you shouldn't have a problem re-working your scape to do this from what I have seen of your tank on your thread.

I'm thinking about a double island, one of the left and other on the right and leaving the middle and front open. Problem is though....my serpent star has taken up residence in the nooks and crannies of one of my rocks and I can't get him out of it lol. With it being one of the bigger rocks I need to move it towards the bottom and don't want to block him where he can't get out.

It should be, have no doubt you can do it

With the BTA, one way to get it off the rock is to "gently" massage the base a foot until it lets go. Should only take a couple minutes. As far as where it will go when your done....well it will let you know hahaha.

Your welcome

i would pretty much find a place to put him and then if he doesn't like he will move around on his own and find a spot he likes. Never know with the nem's lol.

I placed mine on a rock in like a little cave area where he gets light and good flow and so far he has stayed there.

I highly recommend not letting it float around. When handling anemones I always grab their base (by the foot) in between 2 fingers (like a cigarette). Then just place the foot on the rock and give it a minute to attach.

Dave- What color is the BTA? I'm a BTA addict. I wish I would of got a ritteri while I could. Some guy taking down his tank had a healthy one that was about a foot in diameter. He wanted 75$ and I wasn't quite ready for the challenge yet.

It is a green one, they didn't have RBTA They also had a white one but this one caught my eye because it was bigger and the bubbles were very prominent on it. Wanted to get a pic and post it but just got home and the lights are out now

As far as size I would guess about 3" when fully open. Now the ritteri you spoke about I would have loved to see that. I bet is was beautiful!
