    Hey guys, I have 55 gallons long mixed reef tank. Right now, I'm battling with Dino. At this moment, I'm darkening my tank for 72 hours while dosing dinoX. How do I get rid of it? I have searched online and cannot find a definite answer. I read on Advance Aquarist and according to his research...

    Does anyone have any RBTA's for sale or wanting to get rid of?

    So recently i have been considering introducing a Bubble tip anemone into my tank - My tank has been stable for over a year now i didn't want to rush into anything though since i have only been in the marine trade for about 2 years. So i want to know everything there is to know about caring for...

    Well I have just got a clownfish and unfortunately he has started hosting my Gonipora so I decided I am going to get a BTA. The problem is I have been looking around seeing problems with BTA, and people said they get stuck in some of their powerheads. I was wondering if my powerheads would be...
  5. Anemones
    I bought a RBTA about 5 months ago and now that I'm looking at it today the coloration on the anemone looks really faded. The body of the anemone is actually clear... and the tentacles are a fluorescent pink...now i can't remember if it has always looked like this...or if something has...

    Hi all, So here is my concern. I know it's early to ask this question but I figured it's better to find out early if there's anything i can to do help.. I just bought my first anemone on Sunday. Green bubble tip. It's about 3 inches big. After acclimation, I placed it in one of the top rocks...

    I have a BTA. It looks good. Ive had it for about a week. It originally wandered the tank for a few days but has settled into one spot for the last three. Everyday the last three days about 2pm it crawls off its perch and hides behind the rock and shrivels up for about 2 hours then...

    Since my green BTA split, I'm considering getting another clownfish. Will I have a problem with aggression? From what I've read (and IME) these fish are rather aggressive unless introduced as a pair from the start (and even that's no guarantee!). Any suggestions??

    Well, My green BTA just split last night. It had closed overnight the evening before and came out looking weird the next day (I was a little worried); although, it had been eating and growing and hosting my little false perc clown. So - I go to target feed it today and notice a space...
  11. "Soft" corals
    I just placed a new RBTA in my 240g tank. After acclimating it, I was placing it in the tank and it fell into the middle of the reef under some rocks. It's pretty dark down there, plus I want to be able to see it, but I don't really want to tear apart the whole reef to get it. Do you think it...

    I lost an anemone to a powerhead about one to two months ago because it kept wandering all over the tank. It took two weeks for it to hit a powerhead. I kept my first anemone, a very sick one, for over two years before he split and I gave both away because I was moving. I thought back as to...
