    My Rose Bubble Tip split about 2 weeks ago and I've only got a small 220lt tank. I would gladly sell you one as I think 2 BTA's in a small tank is not a good idea. The only problem is that they have attached themselves to a rock at the very bottom of my reef and I have no idea how to remove one without hurting the BTA or destroying my reef.

    If one of them move to a more accessible place then I will give you a shout.

    What's up with the BTA's anyway, I have had 3 or 4 people ask me if I want to sell one of them........don't the LFS stock them anymore?

    Hell, I don't know Fred.......make me an offer and then tell me how we are going to get it out of the tank without destroying the reef or hurting the nennie. Seriously, I haven't got a clue how to get it out. :blush:

    The nennie has not moved to a more accessible spot yet and I'm not prepared to risk damaging the reef or the nennie. Once it moves to a more accessible spot I will pm you.

    These 2 pics show the nennie before she split. I have since re-scaped the tank a bit and they both moved don onto the very bottom rock...going to be difficult to get one of them out.

    As a matter of interest, what is this BTA called? The "bubbles" are a rose colour and the tentacles have a dark bottle green stripe in them.

    Still an Entacmaea quadricolor, depending on light and nutrients they can take on different colours.

    Could you explain this to me please? How do I know if the nutrients and light are correct for the nennie?

    If it's healthy, as it looks, then lights nutrients are fine. Often an anemone will look different under different conditions or in different tanks. Doesn't mean anything is wrong with either system
