My first BTA!!!!

I decided my clown is going to need a home so I came home with this cutie over Labor Day weekend. She is about 3" when fully open and seems to be happy. I took these with an older 2 MP Sony Mavica camera that uses mini cd's.

Very nice. Is the clown hosting with the anenome. It`s not a guarantee that they will. Mine ignored my BTA and hosted a bubble coral instead.

Nope. It has shown no interest as of yet. I know these things take time if they happen. Mator....yes I named him Mator, has made his home or "territory" in the upper left side of the tank where the heater is and has sort of a hut of sorts between the powerhead and the heater. He does come out once in a while during the day and goes all over the tank and comes out for feeding.

Very nice pics!

What kind of lighting do you have on your system and what kind of lighting did the BTA come from?

Duh..I guess I could have read that on your sig, unless you just did that....

The reason I ask is, the BTA looks a little bleached. Could just be the pic but...Keep an eye on it for the next several days. It will darken in color if it is happy. Also you will continue to see the "bubble/bulb" shape to the tentacles.

How old is your system? I don't see a skimmer listed in your equipment, it may be a good idea to get one especially since you have a trigger, the BTA will not be happy without excellent water conditions.

hahah...it's always been in the sig but its all good.

As for the bleached look. All of the bubble tips they had looked like this. They had long tentacle anemones that were a dark green but I didnt know anything about them and did no know how the fish would react to it. The BTA definitly looks greener in my light than it did at the store. It pretty much looks as it is in the pic....a lime or neon green. It has eaten and seems to have settled in one spot for now. I have only seen it deflated once but i think thats because it .....pooped.

Right now, I am skimmerless. See my posts in the Filtration Choice Poll. I havnt even looked at them yet.

As of last night, my water parameters where right on. I'm pretty good at keeping up with WC's
