Great looking pics. I love the BTA. He looks pretty healthy.

Yeah, he has great color and awsome inflation. I have not gotten him to take food, but he basks in my lighting (he hids in a crevice at night and comes out when the lights are turned on).

I have heard people keeping anemones nd barely having to feed them, should I be worried about it not taking food?

I had one for a yr or two. I got rid of it because my clowns ignored it for corals. I never fed mine. I feel like they get what they need from the lighting and water column and if clowns are hosting it then they will feed it also.

Well, if yours lasted for two years without feeding then I suppose mine can handle a week! My clowns are tank bred so I doubt they will ever host the BTA (thought the male hangs around my hammer a lot), but I think they are interesting animals in their own right. In fact, many a visitor immediately ask me where the anemone is totally ignoring my corals, as if it is assumed that I must have one.

At first no. The second I dropped the Kole in the PBT was all over him. I had anticipated this, normally I wouldn't have added a Kole after a PBT but I bought the Kole at a ridiculous one day sale price to replace the PBT and I just hadn't found the PBT a new home yet.

So, what I did was suspend a hand held mirror up to the inside of the tank glass. the PBT say its own reflection and was so pissed at it that it forgot the Kole even existed. I let the PBT beat itself up against the mirror for a few hours and when I removed it he still didn't care about the Kole.

Since then they have been best friends (three months now), the Kole shadows the PBTs evert move now. The only time I see slight aggression is if they are both feeding off the same nori clip, I use two clips on opposite sides of the tank for this reason but like I said the Kole is the PBT's shadow so the normally end up eating off the same one.

Beatiful PBT, Nice idea with the mirror I would have never thought of that. Good luck with the PBT and the Kole.
