I bought a BTA a few months ago. It was sold to me as a Maroon BTA. The base was a pale rust red and the tentacles were pale white with maybe a slight green tint to them. When I first brought it home it kept its tentacles rather compact and bulblike. The first night it wandered under a ledge of LR
and found a spot that concealed its base and allowed it to extend its tentacles around the rocks. It hasn't moved from this spot since.
Okay, I haven't seen it become very compact or bulblike since I first bought it. Its tentacles are usually elongated and recently they've changed color. First thing I noticed was some white specks on them. But more recently they've gotten to become green in color and no longer seem translucent as they once were.
The tank (29 gal
.) has been cycled for almost 10 months. Water parameters have been good. Lighting is fine (75W VHO
10,000K and 75W VHO
Actinic Blue) Tank mates are a small yellow tang, a false perc and a royal gramma, some nasarius snails and a few hermits (scarlet and blue leg).
This my first SW
tank and my first experience with an anenome. Does this sound bad? I haven't really thought it looked bad but now it's green so I'm concerned.
Thanks in advance. And I apologize if I haven't supplied enough information.
