keeping the bulb in a bta

ive read in an article that some bta's will lose their bulb shape, and that their is not much studies on why they do so. but just to make an empirical observation, i just wanted to know how some of you (who have bta's that have maintained its bulbshaped in the aquarium) maintain your bta's e.g. aquarium lighting, bta location, feeding, and etc.. i just like to say thanks to the people who reply to this topic..

There is not a lot a info out on this topic. It seems the bulbs just come and go over time, no rhyme or reason. People who upgrade their lighting do report the bulbs returning for some period of time. It seems the bulbs of mine return when the anemone is disturbed in some way.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
