View Full Version : BTA no longer inflating

08/11/2017, 11:45 AM
I have a BTA that used to have an anemone crab hosting in him. However the Anemone crab has since left the BTA. since the Anemone crab de-hosted the BTA has shrunk and is now about the size of a quarter. All of his tentacles are out but nothing is inflated. Any ideas on how to help?

I will try to get a picture later.

It looks odd but doesn't stand out as unhealthy. It may just be going through a phase. Sometimes they do random things.

What is your water flow like were it is? Lighting?
