I had a BTA in my 55gal doing great when it suddenly disappeared. Not seeing it for a few days I starting to worry it might be dead and contaminating the water. Moved around rock work to find it and it was nowhere in the tank. At this point i figured it fell apart and already did the worse so i decided to do a water change and clean out the filters. Long and behold it had been sucked up by the filter! I Noticed what was in the filter looked like mini BTA attached to live rock rubble. I put them back into the tank to watch them closely for now.
Did the anenome get ripped up by the filter and regenerate the pieces to make smaller anenomes? Will they survive?
The type of filter i use is hang on the back Aquaclear. Any suggestions how to prevent this from happening again?
Thanks & hope I posted this right, it's my first one
