The victims are our oceans treasures. Everyone wants an nem, but they have no clue that there are no BTA that are white or yellow, which means no one is doing research, they just want one, no clue to what they need as far as conditions or lighting, I so love nems, and it makes me sad that the industry keeps harvesting them because LPS
keep selling them to people who do not know that a white nem is not good. (90) percent of all reef forums questions can be divided into, BTA, Tangs, and Mandarins, the 3 hardest creatures to keep in an enclosed environment, but the most sought for as a new reef keeper. Makes you want to throw in the towel, hopefully someone is listening :-} OK I am off mu soap box, going to go and enjoy me reef
Personally I Thank you for any advice ( and others here as well ) . You responded to a thread I started a few days ago about adding a NEM to my current tank and questioned my lighting as well and your response might not have been what I wanted when you warned me that my LED
light would not support a NEM , I do however have a MH
light that would work for me. Good light , bad light not really the issue here but it is your ( what do I call it ; Constructive Critism ) that weather people want to hear it or not should at least reconsider what they are doing and do the reasearch necessary.
I am still looking to add a NEM but have done some more homework on the subject , without your input that might not be the case.
Thanks again to everyone here for all the help and valuable information.
