My new BTA

Just picked up this awesome BTA at the store today for only 20.00 bucks, cant beat it. Was not bubbled up at the store but acclimated him and within 5 minutes of being in my 20 Long he started bubbling up immediately and has not budged from the spot i put him in. He is a florescent green with vibrant pink tips. Camera doesnt do the color justice, loving him. May try feeding him tonight as im sure he hasnt been fed at the store.

That was a steal, most lfs put a premium on the rbta vs a gbta, and you got it cheap either way.
