Yesterday I purchased a maroon BTA. After acclimating, I placed it on a great spot on the LR
(yeah, I knew it wouldn't last). Anyway I just want to relay it's behavior so maybe some of you can tell me that everything's alright.
I turned off the lighting (Actinic blue 75 watt VHO
and 10,000K 75 watt VHO
---29 gallon tank up and running since March) around 10 pm and left on the blue LED
moonlight. The anemone's tetacles became narrow and elongated and moved around a lot more. It appeared to spread out.
I woke up at 5 am to find it underneath the LR
with only portions of its tentacles sticking out in two different directions. They still seem kind of elongated (less bubble tip).
Is this part of the acclimation process? I understand that these things move around a lot looking for an ideal spot but it will be alright under the rocks until then?
