Never wants to stay where I put him.

Wow! That's some beautiful color!

 

I have the same problem with my anem. It can really be a true pest when it attempts fate with the other habitants.

uhm.. that's what they do - move - and if you move it too much you will stress it and it will implode. Well maybe not implode but you get the point. Leave it alone and let it find it's own spot. There is a reason it is walking. I have about 12 BTA's right now and they all move until they find their happy place. Then they tend to stay put unless something in thank changes.

Thanks, Kure! I'm using a Nikon D70 with a macro.

 

Pickle, my GBTA stayed in the same spot for 5 weeks and then it moved.

What light is it under? Poor guy is not happy. Once it finds its place feed it krill everday. That is what i give mine. It is fat and never moves.

It has since moved and is extremely perked now! I've now been feeding it directly with a turkey baster with mysis. Seems to be working great!

 

Now if I could get him to stop being a pest and stay in one spot!

that's wonderful!

 

I'd like to purchase a Nikon myself, but I'd rather spend it on the tank :)

once they find a spot, they tend to sick to it(mostly). I have one in the same spot for about 4 or more years now (lost track of how long I've had it), it hasn't moved an inch since.
