Hello guys, does this BTA look healthy to you? (I am new in the reef world and I still don't know much about anemones)
Thanks

It seems to look okay. How long have you had the tank setup up? and what kind of lights are you running?
I was feeding mine 3 times a week silversides cut in half depending on the size of the nem but I have cut back to like 3 times a month.

It was like this at the LFS the day I bough it. The tank is RSM 240 T5 watts over 65 gallons 5 months old.

Thanks Garrett

Looks to be loosing coloration. My guess would be due to insufficient lighting and your tanks not really mature enough for nem yet either.

you should do your research BEORE you make a purchase. Take it back and give your tank and yourself 6-9 more months to mature and get to know it.

Healthy anemone?

What is exactly the difference from 4 month tank and 6 month tank? Can a tank mature that much in 2 months that it will make that big difference to the anemone?

BEFORE purchase the animal I red some article in which it was suggested to wait 6 months in order to buy an anemone, but it wasn't a rule, that depend from tank to tank...
