    Hey guys! Since I got my BTA I've been feeding him silversides and cubes of piscine mysis and sometimes clams. He looks extremely healthy but the thing is he's lost some color and is dingier colored. I've heard that feeding silversides can do this... is that true? What do you guys think?

    I am looking for a non-green BTA near the Virginia Area. Ideally a rainbow or possibly a yellowish color would be ideally. PM if you know someone or have a clone to sell! Thank you.

    Hi all, so after the big cleaning of my tank and trading in my snowflake eel and mandarin I came home with a 6 line wrasse and a bubble tip anemone. I have no experience with anemones and. Have read they can be quite difficult to care for. Anyway he seemed ok yesterday, inflated and was happy...

    I have a Lemon Drop (pink, yellow, and green) BTA that has been acting a little strange the past week. Unfortunately it chose the back corner of my tank to make its home for the last year and a half, and so I have a hard time getting a good look at it, but its tentacles have been sort of...

    I'm wanting to get a carpet anemone for my 36g corner tank, which currently houses a happy lemon drop bta. I was wondering whether there would be problems between the two considering that they are different species - my bta lives up at the top of my tank and hasn't moved from there since I got...

    so I found my BTA caught in the cone of my filter and quickly turned it off but this is the second time it has happened, he is still recovering from the first experience (which was worse) but what can I do to prevent this from happening? I won't be home to watch him constantly moving and he was...

    I'm trying to learn about a tank so I can take proper care of it. This pink/rose BTA has gone through some changes and I just want to make sure they're doing ok. earlier today: a few minutes ago, a little more opened up... The one on top I believe is the original anemone. Which, when...

    Ok so I will be upgrading my 40 gallon tank to a 90 gallon soon and I was hoping once I move all of the LR from my old into the new one if it was ok for me to add a bta and let it settle in before I add my old corals.

    I have 2 questions...at least to start with. 1) I read (some time ago and can't find again) that after adding an anemone to a tank that I should wait a certain period of time before feeding. I think it was something like 2 weeks, but that seems long to me, so does anyone know? 2) I've tried...

    I have only a +/- 7 Gallon tank....24 Liter and I just purchased a new BTA however, not long after the BTA anchored its self my peppermint shirimp came over and started munching on the BTA. Of course being worried for the BTA i did some research and most people had issues with the BTA eating the...

    I was in a lfs and noticed a small bta. it was opened but small and it had a large tomatoe clown hosting in it, but it was more killing it then hosting because the fish was so huge in comparison, Anyway I convinced the guy to sell it to me for a low cost cause it looked like it was going to die...

    I've got a BTA in a 20g long. I've basically given my BTA his own half of the tank. Regardless, he prefers to hide behind a piece of live rock and face the back of my tank. I know there could be a host of reasons why he moves, and to be honest i'm not too worried about him facing forward as long...
