    I'm trying to figure it out but I can't say 100% but it looks like a M. Doreensis (LTA) to me. Here's a pic of someone elses for comparision

    Ya, that looks like a LTA to me as well, all the seabeas ive ever seen are a light brown with purple tips. But either way, its a very nice looking nem.

    had to rearange the whole tank to get him a large enough place to fit. when they open they take up alot of room .. it can definately eat, I had a chromis a couple months back that died on me and I watched the clown bring it to the nem. only thing that came to mind was lion king and the circle of life.. :D

    That's awesome that the clowns fed the nem like that with the chromis. Little creepy but that's nature for you. anybody ever have any problems with Anemones and powerheads? If so what do you do to prevent it?

    I did once a few years back with my first nem.. he went wandering and got to close.. since then I have only had the ones I have now but I kept a close eye the first few weeks to see how they adapted...

    A lot of people will cover their powerheads with either a thin foam sponge or a fine mesh.

    I'm thinking mesh bc the foam will get nasty looking.

    Holy cow.....That would change my opinion on it quite a bit. I had NO idea what the cost was for everyone else because I strictly deal with whole salers. I only paid $40 for my BTA. A RBTA costs no more then the green or yellow or purple.....I forget the cost of this hobby quite a bit for others :(
