Sad..sad news!

So, some bad news!

While I was putting in the eggcrate box into the rose bubble tank I had to take out some water and so had to turn up the heater. I should of turned off the heater but did not think of it at the time. I come back later that night and find that the tank was at around 93 degrees and thus I boiled my RBTA!

An expensive lesson in double checking everything after you change something with your tank!!!

What does RBTA stand for again?

RBTA stands for Rose bubble tip anemone

I put in some xenia and a few of my ricordea mushrooms in the tank in the garage so I have already moved on.

Too bad about the boiling episode. How many tanks do you have now? JAMK

I just have 2 tanks, the one in the garage and the main tank in the house. I have another tank just sitting in the garage so maybe I will set it up for some other things to grow in, who knows.
