    Anyone have any ideas what's going on with my Rbta? This is him now and 4 months ago when I got him? Everything else is doing great! I have hammers and torches growing new heads. All parameters are in check! [​IMG][​IMG]

    What kind of light is it getting? My RBTAs are under 2 x 250 watt metal halides and seem to love it.

    Do you feed it? How many fish in the tank? It might need some nutrients. They do seem to do better with clowns hosting them. I don't know anything about the black box LEDs. They guy I bought my RBTA from had it under LEDs. It took a little while for it to adjust to the halides, but it's thriving and splits regularly now.

    I have a yellow tang, fire fish goby, green Chromis, Salifin Blenny, Splendid Dottyback, and 3 Occ. clownfish. They don't even go near it. Haven't in 4 months.
