    Hey guys, with the new tank i was thinkin of getting a nennie for it(when its ready obviously) as the lighting will be well sufficient for it(3X250W MHs) and with the larger(much) size of the tank i am rethinking what i want to get. I was originally on the BTA route, in terms of ease of keeping, but now i'm rethinking this and want to try a more colourful more open nennie. I currently have a Maroon clownfish in the old tank but i might not pass him over so i can get a different clown for the nennie. So my question is what nennie do you think i should get and why, what clown would it go with, and what is the difficulty of keeping that specific nennie?

    Stay with BTA. Get a rose coloured BTA with some Black percs. wicked combo.

    bta really are fantastic, as for colour/ openess they really are quite cool:) but then i dont have experience with other nennies.

    warrs advice on combo is great, but there are so many combo's you can get. but agreed the RBT and black percs are a killer combo:)

    na dont really like the black percs but thats a good idea. i love the wavey nature of things int he sea, so i want the nennie to do the same, hence wanting longer tentacles

    cool, exactly like that? as in exactly exactly? i dont want it to actually have the bulbs on it. i dont like the bulbs, want the wavy part, it would only be a couple of months down the road though, got to wait for the tank to be ready first:) shot though warren, got any pics you could show me? Maybe PM me a price so i can have an idea for the future?

    RBTA's by petshop go for R1200 last time i checked.
    Insane amount of cash for one IMO and personally i dont think they are worth it..
    i think the green ones are also just as pretty (kept one for a friend for some time)
    and i really like the magnifica annenomes. they say they are hard to keep, but i'm finding mine to be easier than the BTA i was looking after.
    plus, they have long tenticles, so they look awesome in a surging current!

    that price is a bit fearsome, i really love the colour of the RBTA in the thread, its absolutely gorgeous. I was thinking of going magnifica but these colours have captured me, so i'd still like to with it if its wavy, not a fan of the bulbs though, just waiting on moolis

    its hard to explain, but as i've been told some dont have the bulbs, or they're smaller in some etc, but ya i basically dont want the bulbs, would rather go for a magnifica if i can only get ones with bulbs on it

    I have a Retteri and a Green BTA. Both are doing fine. IF i was you i would chance a Retteri, they are hard to care for though BUT well worth it. Mine is over a 30cm big and inhabited my clarkiis ;)

    Just remember they are very hard to care for, it took mine a 2-3 weeks to adjust (Imagine a 30cm Anenome moving about in a reef 1.2m tank), now he stays put ;)

    The guides say they like Medium-High flow. Mine didnt like it and move to a Low flowing area. So it just goes to show each are unique.
