Bubble Tip Anemone

I've had my BTA for about 2months and it lost color. I feed it 3 times a week and have a 20w light. What is wrong with it?

Agree, not nearly enough light. Also you could be harming it by feeding so often. With the right lighting you shouldn't need to feed it at all...

with a45 gallon tank your gonna need a 6-t5 at minimum. For close to the same price you could go with a Tao 120 watt dimmable. Also you don't need to feed your anemones. Your clowns will take care of it and the flow will blow extra into them.

You don't need to feed anemone, but you can if you want to. Maybe just once weekly for faster growth.
