View Full Version : LTA Nem Issues and Pics

01/26/2012, 08:02 PM
I originally posted because my Nem wasn't grabbing onto anything. Well, I am concerned now that there is something wrong as he hasn't moved. I put a long list of my param's etc here http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2123315 Here are the pics. He just sits as in the last pic, and has been there since the first night. I have tried to right him a couple times. From those of you who know, does he look ok?

This morning he was upright, but still not holding onto anything. I understand it can take a while for them to find a good spot, i'm just concerned he has other issues as he is not even attempting to.

I'm a bta guy myself but with all nems its best to leave them alone the first 48 hrs and see where they move themselves...my brother in law has a large LTA it stays in the sand at the bottom of his tank it took him almost a week to find its spot though...
colors look good try to get a shot of its mouth for us and best of luck

Thanks, I really appreciate the feed back. Here are some pics of the mouth from this morning. He was upright, but his foot was not attached.

If you can just leave him be. When I add anemones I try to set them in the back of my tank and let them move where they want.

Yeah, like I said in your other thread, mine took almost 3 weeks to foot itself. You say you got it from the LFS, are you sure it is a LTA? It is kind of hard to tell from your pictures since the blue is washing everything out, but a look from the underside would let you know for sure.
