View Full Version : Bleach BTA still struggling

09/05/2017, 08:15 PM
Thought I would continue to post about my bleached GBTA.

It's been about 1.5 months now. Went from isolation tank back to DT.
It stays at the bottom of the sand bed, handing on it's side, never foot down.

It stayed away from flow and darker areas hiding in the rocks.

I put it back into isolation tank. It does not want to eat either, seems
to spit everything out.

It mostly blows up it's foot to large proportions and then deflates to like
size of a quarter.

All water parameters are in range and I also use Seachem Reef Plus.

Will keep trying...

I have read different websites and forums

There seems to be some conflicting info and not much is
known on how to treat them.

For bleached anenome

1. What type of food to target feed if it simply does not eat?

2. Have decent amount of light but not too much, not
sure what is reasonable lightiing for bleached one

3. Decent flow, but it does not grip onto in decent flow

4. Leave it alone, ot cam get worst and toxic time bomb

I have tried small pcs of shrimp, mysis, fish food pellets,
Marine Snow when target feeding. I closes up.
Hours later foot is up and mouth still closed.
Food is out.

Foot most swelling up daily when lights off
Lights on, it tends to shrink back
