Can you get a better picture of the underside?

What color is its foot?

If it is an LTA there will be a bunch of "bumps" on the underside (( called, vercule, or something like that, can never remember how to spell it ))

Ignore the hole in the foot of this LTA, and look at the "bumps" on the underside of the oral disc, that is what you would be looking for.

A better picture would be really nice, but I understand that that can be hard to do.

What color is the base of the foot? Can you see that yourself?

The fact that it is on a rock makes me lean towards a BTA, I have had several BTAs over the years that have similar tentacle structure to yours.

looks like a bubble tip to me. you can see the smoothness of the underside. and as todd pointed out, then tentacle structure is very distinctive of bubble tips.

It seems to me that its a BTA, from what I can tell, there are no bumps on the foot like an LTA has. It does not seem to be in perfect condition as the foot does seem purely white. I would try to get it onto a regular feeding schedule when everyting starts getting better.
