my 2 cents... just let the bta get used to the lighting on its own. When I put my rose bta in, it went under an overhang and didnt come out for a 2 days, but then little by little it expanded each day more, and now its as big as a football when it fully expands.

You definitely dont want to force the bta out if it hides, that'll stress it or kill it if its attached. Its not a coral... it moves around the tank on its own. Just let it do its thing, it will come out on its own accord.

I put the starfishes in the sump...(also put a piece of rock in there) I've seen it in done one of the forums before...



oh and it's green at night...

so I won't touch it anymore for awhile..

This was a good idea. I had to put mine in the sump also. You can move the anenome if you want but it is still going to go where it wants to.

i think there was a little confusion as to what was put into the sump. I too thought you had put the anemone into the sump. That I would say wouldnt be the best idea. Putting the starfish into the sump, however, is fine.

I was assuming the starfish was. I hope I`m right.

It was the starfish in the sump, I read it as the BTA the first time too though.

Sometimes bta's will let the water take them around to find a better spot and then reattach there, but if your bta is constantly drifting around and not attaching then there is a problem.
