Hello all I'm getting worried about my bta's. lets start from the beginning. I set up a 60g tank about 3 months ago. using 2 rows of marineland's 36" LED
lighting with a power compact. I have app 100 lbs of live rock and a nice 6' sand bed. I did a cycle with nothing but rock and sand over a period of 4 to 5 weeks. I always wanted a clown with a bta, since our first tanks over 5 years ago. anyway, we had a very bad storm in the area and my LFS
lost all power and a/c for 4 days and lost almost everything they had, on day 3 I went into the store and my heart broke, anyway I took home a gold striped maroon with his bta host and a much smaller bta on the same rock. I thought I lost the small one, he stayed in hiding for 4 days and then emerged from his hole in the rock and is doing great, very fat arms, and getting bigger every week.
well, 2 weeks ago the larger bta split, I was scared, but all went well. so over the past 2 weeks he has split 2 more times. I now have 5 bta's on the same rock and the one gold striped clown. I monitor my water 2 times a week and do my partial water changes every saturday. my last chemical test show nitrite- 0 ppm
ammonia .25 nitrate 40 and ph 8.4
I have lots of snails, crabs, and even 4 small sea urchin's. I havent lost anything in the tank but 1 snail, and I got him out the day after he was pulled from his shell.
Im scared im doing something wrong...any advice would be helpful. thanks
