    BTA behavior? Shy, antisocial or sick?

    He'll move on his own. BTA's are weird. He might just be checkin' out some other real estate opportunities. 🙂

    Newbie here

    RODI units are hooked up to a water supply, not directly to a tank. You turn on the faucet and the water is purified through the unit. You then use that water either for top off OR you mix salt in it. I really like the units from Bulk Reef Supply (BRS). Actually, BRS has an excellent YouTube Channel. One is their process of setting up a 160 gallon, but it goes through everything you need to know about setting up a tank. Here is the link, I suggest you watch all of the videos.

    Tips on removing RFA

    Alternatively to the credit car method, I often "massage" mine. Just gently rub around the ring of the foot repeatedly, moving in once it detaches, bit by bit.

    Anemone Help!?

    Some BTA's lose their bubbles under different lighting. Some of mine are bubbly and others are straight-tentacled. To answer your questions: 1) BTAs are actually really hardy, so, given time, it will heal. 2) I have no idea how long it will take. 3) I would keep it. 4) My nems lost their bubbles, but they're totally fine. I would feed him some shrimp a couple days a week. That might help him gain back some strength. -Nick

    Stocking List Okay?

    A clown pair is considered heavily stocked for a 10 gallon. I'd say a clown pair and then a small, durable fish like a goby or blenny.

    Are cardinals a bad choice in a mixed reef tank?

    As long as there are areas in the tank where the flow is not as intense, they'll be fine.
  7. Hi all, I have a bunch of extra halimeda and I don't want to throw it out. I'm located in the North Hills, but I'm willing to meet somewhere. Let me know if interested! -Nick

    BTA and lighting

    Have you ever heard of doing a zooxanthellae "transplant"? Many people do that. Basically, you cut a tentacle off of another anemone or a euphyllia, attach it to a piece of food, and feed it to the anemone. Zooxanthellae is present in the cytoplasm of the cells and eating something that contains zooxanthellae will help replenish it.

    Mixing Different Breeds

    As the resident clown nut, I'll explain a few things. Ocellaris and Perculas mix quite easily with each other. I actually have an occy/perc pair. My big lady is an onyx perc and her hubby is a misbar domino occy. You have to be careful with the other kinds, though. Don't mix clarkiis with tomatoes or skunks. Basically, if it's not an occy or perc, don't mix them. I am also against the chromis. Chromis are another kind of damsels, just like clowns, so mixing them wouldn't be a great idea. Let me know if you have any more questions! -Nick
  11. CONGRATS! It's well deserved.

    Meet Jaws and Fluffy

    WOW. I love the names and those fish are STUNNING. My two favorite kinds of clowns are Onyx Percs and MochaVincis.

    Will I succeed with dwarf seahorses?

    I don't know much about this, but I bet @vlangel does.

  15. There's nothing in the tank, so I don't think it will hurt anything.
