Awesome, thanks. Surprising coincidence, I’m in St. Louis as well. I was just concerned because I have two mini maxis that have bleached but my green and red bta’s have not. I just got about a 10” rainbow or bicolor bta yesterday from gateway as they got a bunch in from a tear down and wanted to ensure I didn’t have issues.

IME, anemones don't bleach because of too much light, but rather not enough light or another ailment that kills the zoox. Since they have the ability to move, most times nems will just move to an area that they prefer, be it with lower lighting or lower flow. BTAs are notorious for this. My mini maxi is in a shallow 60 gallon tank lit with two Radion XR30s set at about 65% and hasn't moved at all.

Welcome....yea a coincidence for sure! Yea your nems will be fine under the Radions..... strange about the mini maxi...you probably already did it....but did you double check your water just in case something is "off"?

My RBTA is in a 45 cube. Anemone is attached to the bottom, but expands to about 8 inches below the light. Gen 4 Radion XR15 is 3 inches above the surface. Also have H. magnifica about 8 inches directly under a Radion in a 90 gal. tank (has 2 Radions).

Proportions are:
White: 80
Blue: 40
Royal Blue: 40
Green: 25
Red: 25
UV: 0
Violet: 25
Warm White: 60

Overall: 60

Schedule is 10 hours, 30 minute up and down on each end of that 10 hours.

Dan
