here's a photo of it after the lights have been off 4 hours. I figured it'd close up, but it seems to be stretching out.

Experts: what's the best thing to feed him? I have good light, but I'm sure he'll still need real food. I heard somewhere to use silversides, but I can only get a huge frozen slab from the LFS. The LFS suggested a jar of zooplankton in some kind of liquid.

Mine seems to enjoy krill. i got a little packet of the frozen whole krill and put a few in some RO/DI water and let it defrost. Both of mine loved it and looks 10 fold better after feeding.

Yeah, mines a bit bleached out. I have some krill, but they don't seem to be whole (its those Aqua Yums brand ocean krill).
I tried mysis shrimp last night, but my fish all went for it. Next time i'll turn off the powerheads so I can spot feed it more accurately.

Most likely from the shipping process. It should recover. I have never target-fed any oth my anemones, they get what they get at tank feeding time.

IME, a bleached BTA can be brought "back" fairly quickly by feeding krill/silversides every 5-7 days. Some anemones will prefer krill, some prefer silversides, etc. Watch to see which food(s) your's prefers. When the zooxanthellae return there is no need to target feed IME as Lando said also. Congrats.

I shut down my powerheads for their first feeding. just stuck 1 krill ( break off the back half to make sure its not all curled up otherwise they will have trouble getting it down.) then i just put it eaither in their tenticles and let them grab it, or for my rose i put it right on his mouth and let him close.

post more pics when yours comes back around.

Mine climbed the wall and is now towards the top of the tank. The gold stripe maroon clown hasn't left his side.

Well, my BTA doesn't seem to wanna take food from me via spot feeding. He also shrivels up a lot of the time.
This morning, I can't even find him, but I know he didn't get caught in a powerhead.

How long does it 'usually' take for a BTA to find the spot it wants to park in? The guy at the LFS said they tend to always roam around in his tank.

This anemone is really stressing me out!
