BTA Question??

I have had a BTA for about 5 months now, for four of those months she was doing great. Lately on one side her tenticles are shrivling up.... They are getting kinda ugly, the other side is fine, Long beautiful tenticles?? Any reason this would happen??

Some more info would help- type of lighting and wattage, tank size and age, type of filtration, water parameters-ammonia, trite, trate, Ca/Alk. Is there a coral on that side that may be irritating it?

Not a good idea. W/ the amount of light you have supplemental feedings that frequently are more harmful than anything. Digestion can be taxing on an anemones health. I would cut that out all together, or go to biweekly feedings AT MOST. Also FWIW, my BTA's don't like silversides for some reason. They respond much better to krill. Everything else looks OK.
