Green Bubble tip

How does he look.

Attachment 108668

He is currently on the move. I got him from a store that wasn't treating him right IMO and I think he would be better under my watch. You can check out my biocube journey thread for the complete story. But he was under normal tank lighting and was as high up on the glass as he could get and still be in the water. And he was Half deflated. Now he is all perky and pretty much all inflated tips. Looks very nice now compared to we're he was.

Cant wait to see him fully adjusted to your tank. I just added a gbta to my tank last week to contrast my rbta. I used to be against having nems in my reef...now im hooked. They are amazing.

Ya he looks awesome. He got himself backed into a cave my firefish lives it and looks to slowly be making his way out. He better i don't want to take down a bunch of rock work to get him out

Well he is in the cave still and has some of his body out not sure what the heck he is doing

Attachment 108819

Is this normal behavior. I was told by someone on here that BTA tend to go into caves when they are going to split. He is a good size. Doesn't seem unhappy

Just wait. You just added him. It took my rbta a week to adjust. He hid under an overhang and is just now starting to fully extend himself out into the light. As for my gbta, doing the exact same thing...just this time I'm suspecting splitting. Either way, all you can do it wait.

Ok I know I'm being paranoid I know sorry. Well I feed the tanks today. I dissolves a brine shrimp cube and used a baster and shot some on him cause he is open and his mouth closed up so I think he ate some. I also posted a pic of a marion clown hosting in a GBTA on the outside of the tank to try to give mine the idea. I read online sometimes it works
