my 3 mth old bta has moved to the underside of an overhang. it's been there for 2 weeks. The first week it would open up and show it self (it would extend out into the open) for several hour a day and them retreat back underneath. this past week it has stay under cover and is starting to look a little more withdrawn(deflated). I have another bta (2 mtn old) that is doing great. Can anyone tell me what's going on. Water parameter are all ok. Lighting: 3X 250 10k hqi MH w/ 2 -110watt actinics

thanks

I have known BTA's that have grown out w/just PC's. Mine are under an over hang but do extend the tent's buring the day. Is it eating? As long if it is eating, I would not worry too much. How big is it? What was the tank conditions were the bta came from?

Might be about to split.

Hello,
I have read that BTA will often shrink and hide for several days just prior to splitting aka 'cloning' themselves. Hopefully this is what is happening to yours. Maybe you'll have two in a few days!
