    Idk, those didn't really look like bta's to me, but I could be wrong. Especially for only $10. But if you do decide to get one, be advised that they require mature, stable water. Your lighting should be enough. Good luck. :)

    They look funny to me too, in some pictures they look kinda like the long tentacle nems, in others they look like pest nems

    Well, the nems in the first picture that look like pests to me dont have any clown hosts. The other nems which look like either long tentacles or bubbles do have clown hosts. And those are not sebea nems.
