I bought a green bta three days ago and he looked healthy no tears on the foot or anything and I put it in my tank about 3/4 of the way down I have t5 ho and he moved to under a overhang which I hear is normal yesterday and this morning before I turned on the lights he was on top of the rocks flipped over tenticles to the rock and foot pointed up is this normal?

It looks ok to me, did it come on a rock? How did you acclimate it? Ideally you want it to attach to a rock but it look healthy

I don't know if its ok or not but mine does that on a regular occurrence and then blossoms out full again. I was told that it is either changing the water in it's system or going to the bathroom. So far mine seems to be doing fine. It scared the bejesus out of me the first time it did it.
