just a couple quick pics of my GBTA's i took today, they were feeling a bit left out. its a nice little colony, they really like to stick close together. in the second photo you can see the tentacles of another clone coming from down behind the rocks.

They call me EC
Judging from those pics, I don't think they feel neglected. :smokin: How many do you have? Are they all clones for the same anemone?

:D , i just meant neglected because i have been spending all my time making sure my carpet is getting settled in ok.

they are clones, i've had the original for 2+ years and i have 4 right now ( have sold a few over the years ), what looks like two up top in the first pic is really just one a mammoth ( ~12" ) and the rest are 6" - 8".

thanks for the reply

Sweet GBTA's! No clowns for them? Man I wish my OBTA would clone itself already.

thank you, i do have a pair of clowns but........

i got a pair of false percs when i first got into saltwater ( 7 years ago ) and only decided to get into nems about 3 years ago. i knew that BTA's weren't a natural host for the FP but they have been with me so long and i didn't feel i was ready for a carpet back then either. so now i have 4 GBTA's and a Gigantea carpet anemone ( natural host ) but they still host the a fitting less than an inch away from the BTA's. you can see the PVC fitting ( just to the right of the nems ) in the first photo, so close but............... the female teased me one night a couple of weeks ago but no luck since. :mad:

thanks :)


these pics are under a 400W 14K aqua connect bulb, the tank doesn't look anywhere as 'pink' in real life, i need to play with my camera settings. it isn't my usual bulb but it was in stock and looked brighter than the XM20K.
