My beautiful Rose BTA has been showing some growth over the past month and a half that I've had it. Isolating it from the Gold Stripe Maroon Clowns, my hope was that it would grow larger (it was quite young and small). However, my Skunk Cleaner shrimp has been stealing its food right out of its mouth/belly when I would walk away!!!

So I decided to release the fish so they could live in the Rose and keep the shrimp away. I did this last night. Today I noticed that most of the tentacles are gone! The female clown apparently nibbled most of them off, to the point I'm not sure how it can feed itself!!!

I may put the Rose in my 55g, where it'll have a better chance of survival.
