    Just got a Green BTA last week. It's doing great but I wanted to feed it. I was gonna go to the store and get some mysis shrimp. But while I was standing there I had a lightbulb moment. I had a piece of PVC pipe that reaches to the bottom of the tank where the BTA is. I then dropped pellet...

    I bought a mated pair of clowns and an green bta from my Lfs 4 days ago, the first 2 days the anemone was fine. The clowns hosted it right away. I didn't see this to be a problem cause they were already hosting the green already at the lfs. One day goes by he moved to his spot and was looking...

    Help! Just bought beautiful gbta last wknd. Was placed on rock when first placed in the tank. I knew it would move about the tank until it found a good place. But in the past 3-4 days it has moved to the back of the reef in a cave of a very lg rock. Can only see several tentacles. Today...

    I know this is pretty far fetched, but i will ask anyway. I bought 2 Maroon clowns from Tim. They are doing fantastic and have now established themselves in the lower right hand corner of my tank. They are snugglin up to a small Condi anenome that is no where near big enough to house them. So i...

    I just stopped in at the LFS. I heard he had gotten 2 Pink Pacific or Hatian or something or other anemone's for watching someone's tank so I went to check them out. I've been trying to look them up. They look just like this http://www.vividaquariums.com/10Expand.asp?ProductCode=02-1518-10...

    We already have 2 reefs set up with fish, softies and lps. We are thinking of making the 115 gallon tank sitting in the garage into a FOWLR tank but would love to see pics of your's to see if it's what we want to do. Please share, if you don't mind. :fistcash:

    the 20g tank had a crash on Friday night - either the flatworms died and caused the skimmer to overflow into the sump or vice versa... I found out about it at 1:30AM (Saturday) and performed a major water change... the anemone, and two clowns didn't look good.. didn't see the blenny... xenia...

    How do you guys fed your anwmones? Do you push the food through the mouth? I tried to feed mine and he kept pushing it out. How often should you feed them? I have a flower/rock anemone.

    Ok first I have a question. I picked up a 4" Purple Haitian Anemone about a week ago. He was fine in the tank looking great for 4 days. Now I can't find it anywhere. I have looked on and off for hours. Anyone else have one just vanish???? Next I picked up 1 RBTA from Jaim last night about 8PM...

    I want try try again with an anemone. I have already bought 2, and both have died. I have since changed my water parameters, and nothing has died since the stats have settled. I think my 'strange problem' was my salinity due to an inaccurate refractometer. I got a bobber, and since then...
