    So after having my 30g up and running and everything going well with some corals I decided to try BTA again. I got a RBTA from my local LFS on 3/19/16, drip acclimated him and everything was fine. That was a Saturday. By Sunday one of my marroon clowns were hosting. The RBTA found a good home...

    Hello there! I apologize if this isn't the proper way to do this, first post, first SW tank, and with it comes a bit of cluelessness I'm afraid. I've recently bought some live inhabitants from a long time aquarist getting out of the hobby, among them were quite a few colorful polyps, an...

    A friend gave me a Nem about a month ago for watching his coral for a month when his light messed up. The whole time I had the Nem the first time he never moved. Now he moves all the time (till now). I never moved anything from the first time and I even put him where he used to be. But he wasn't...

    My nems are not looking so hot. I have three (split from one large) nems that have gone down hill it seems this past week.. They pretty much stay shriveled up and the tentacles do not extend at all like they used to. They are pretty much short little nubs now. They have been this way for over a...

    I woke up this morning and about an hour later realized I was missing one of my residents. My blue damsel is missing. He decided to make his cave beside the nem shortly after I got the nem last week. It's a condy nem. This morning I noticed my nem was closed up like it was eating. I think I know...

    I placed an order with and they offered free shipping for orders over $99, so I spent a while looking through their selections and found several things that I thought would look good in my tank that didn't seem like I'd be able to find locally for cheaper, but came just shy of...

    I have had reef tanks since I was young but never had a NEM, anyway I picked up a RBTA a few weeks ago and am wondering what kind of flow they like high, low, med..... It had dug its foot deep into a rock and I do not think it is going to move, it is in a high flow area and seams happy. The...

    Link to article Apparently the wiggle dance clownfish do does more than cover them in nem slime so that they don't get stung. Apparently beyond feeding the nem leftovers, they also aerate them with water circulation allowing them to live in areas they wouldn't otherwise thrive in.

    Hey all, I'm guessing this isn't a big thing - but of course, I guess I'm wondering what I don't know that I don't know.... I took out my 5 bulb, individual reflector T5HO set up with 3midday, 1actinic and one blue+ and replaced with two AI Sol units about a foot above waterline. I have them...

    Hey guys so I just bought three huge RBTA's (14 inch diamater) about a week ago with the hopes of splitting them and trading them for corals and selling some of them. Yesterday i set up a frag tank piggybacked onto my sump to put them in so that they wouldn't completely take over my tank and...

    I just purchased a new nem from my lfs. They had it marked as a sun anemone. I can not find anything about this nem online. Has anyone heard of these and maybe know this mislabeling? I will try to get pics up after while. Under white lights it is bright yellow with a pinkish orange foot. Under...

    I am new to nems and I think mine is not happy. I have an RBTA that I put in the tank last Friday 5 days ago. He stayed in the same spot for 2 days and has since made slow movements around my tank. I thought it would have settled in by now. Also the first couple days he deflated at night but...

    I was watching my clown try to pair up with a feather duster tonight. Has anyone else experienced this? Ive been looking for a suitable nem for him but the LFS only has small carpet nem's. Going to have to take a small road trip to find better options.
