I put mine at the highest point since they seem to want light. They haven't moved and are growing TOO rapidly and splitting as well. I feed twice a week. I started with one in March. I now have 4 hosting 6 Ocellaris Clowns

This is something I've come to learn as well. I think alot of bta movement comes from them searching for the best light!

Protect them from themselves.

This was last night. LTA let loose and went a flying. Landed face down in the wave maker and was STUCK to it.

I shut the wave make her off but couldn't pull the nem off without hurting it.

This morning, It's posted up in the center of the tank looking like nothing ever happened.

You asked for it.

I have no clue. My bta is almost 4 months old. Only moved to threaten a zoa with doom and gloom.
After I moved the zoas he went back to happy. Also on the bottom of my aquarium 28" from light source.

I think maxis are my favorite anemone. They’re pretty, get pretty big but not massive, and most importantly they don’t wander once they find a place they like. My BTA is always moving and it drives me crazy. It stays somewhere for a week or two, then does a lap around the tank and ends up back at one of its 3-4 spots it seems to like the most. She’s a terrorist.
