    acclimating shrimp

    Mike I feel your pain! Today I picked up a new pep trying to acclimate it now. I did a drip the last 2 times for an hour the first time and 2 the second. Both died almost immediately after being dropped in the tank. it is frustrating and I hope this one is a fighter and will survive

    Acclimating peppermint shrimp

    and you have to drip acclimate correct? not just get the temp the same and dump it in?

    Irritated Zoa's

    Also I have a frogspawn above the zoa's so maybe that is irritating them? I will move it anyway just to be safe. Thanks all

    Can anyone confirm that this is what is going on? I mean I have never had one split before but i cant imagine its just moving. top picture was taken a few days ago. bottom was taken less than 5 minutes ago

    New RBTA Bleached?

    I think it is already getting a little more red. It keeps moving around the tank (just a few inches). It is eating pretty much everything I put near it. Lmecher what is Zoa & Selcon? I have been feeding it brine shrimp and it ate some flake fish food as well. Can you over feed?

    New RBTA Bleached?

    I recently bought this RBTA and it had just recently split from the original rbta. When I first saw it I did not think it was bleached I just thought it was a baby. My clowns are not hosting, and from what im reading this is possibly a good thing considering it may be stressed out already.

    should i get an anemone

    ok so what wattage are we talking for a healthy anemone? i am thinking of going with a 96 w. pc quad fixture. Do you guys think that would work for a BTA? If not I am thinking of going with a viper clamp on 150w MH.
