Well, I just hope he doesn't die from not eating. I have tried so hard.
I can see his tentacles, they are still pretty bulb-like. Not long and skinny as if it were hungry.

And.. split!?

BTA's at the store will disappear in the stores tanks under the rocks we give them and come back out a week later but there will be 2 of them. I've never personally seen one split but I have cut one down the middle before to propagate them :p

You can take your powerhead and point it behind the rocks. The BTA will move from there. Don't try feeding it until it is ready to take it on it's own. I mean, when the disc is fully open and all the fingers are out. When you hold a piece of shrimp/silverside to it's tentacle, it will grab it on its own.

Okay, good to know. I got it to eat yesterday. And today he's moving more towards the front.

Finally got a good picture of the guy.



Still can't catch my coral beauty though he's white spec'd all over. Can't start my six weeks fishless until he's out of there.

I was able to catch my bicolor dottyback by waiting till the lights went out and removing the piece of LR he was sleeping in. That probably wont work for an angel lol, but you can take a flashlight and shine it at the angel after lights out and it should give you a few seconds to grab him. Good luck.

When it looks that good, you should be able to feed it something small like some shrimp.
