WOW! I wanted a rose bubble-tip when I first got started and I wanted it to host a maroon clown, but since I have a percula... well, no sense getting it.

ntswift - Mine got wrapped around a powerhead also. I noticed him in time, turned off the powerhead and he eventually "un-squinged" himself. I have since taken the advice of a certain trusty moderater emeritus and wrapped my ph intake strainers with nylon. I also had to move the powerheads topside to keep them out of reach. They are hardier than you would think... well, maybe not once they explode... (sorry for your loss).

LOL... Yeah, had I noticed it I might have had the same luck as you. However, I was on vacation at the time and I had a friend watching my tank. He was at work when it happened though. Oh well, maybe I'll get another one when I upgrade my tank. I wanted a rose also but nobody had one for a decent price around here so I had to settle for a green bta. Next time I'll wait for the rose! Hopefully they are smarter too!

Sdellin, how long did you have your bulbs before you changed them?

Well, I'm embarassed to say "11 months." I have a schedule of daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual tank maintenance, but most of the regular stuff is easy to remember so I just basically forgot to look at the schedule and changing the bulbs at 6-8 months.

I put it on the calendar so I won't forget again.

I have two LTA's.. the purple one has stayed in pretty much the same spot since I put it in.
The green one goes out of it's way to attach to the least likely spots (even hand crafted some niches'caves for it in perfect flow/light spots) and stretch up and around and pretty much look silly.
But, it's healthy looking, colorful and 'eats' (ingests normal levels of meaty stuff and isn't horribly splayed out for light), so...whatever it's lil rubby footed self wants to do is ok with me..

I only have one small bubble tip rose the size of a quarter. He's cool and stays put and is quite pretty. I talked to him the other night and found out he has an Ivy League education. Amazing for a young guy. 8)

I wish I was close to you so I could get that LTA! I'd love to have one in my tank because my clowns keep hosting my zoo's! Thanks for the offer!

I have a percula that wallows in my polyps. They don't seem bothered by it so far.
