    Well the L.T.A. looks so good now he has buried himself almost  right up to where he starts to open! He has eaten almost every day. I can truly say I think the worst is behind him!
    And I'm pretty sure he is going to make it.If anything happens to the contrary, I'll be sure to seek my advise here as always. Here is a pic of the L.T.A. I guess I should call him lucky!(lucky to be alive that is!) :D ;) :D

    I got a BTA lately one that actually survived and it choose where it wants to stay. I thought it died but it survived and now it's a host for my maroon.
    I tried LT's before and the ones I got all died. Good luck!

    looking good David. Has the Clown taken to it? Most Clowns are upper reef fish. meaning they don't venture down from the top of a reef very far.

    guys...
    i succeeded keeping one alive (BTA) since September (going 4 months now). So I added a white purple tipped and a green tipped bta. Both are alive (2 weeks going three).
    I am however weary of the white purple tipped variety. What does it eat (i did feed it fish meat)?
