Stop trying to feed it. The tentacles being bubbled up doesn't really have much of a indication on health if it is bleaching. In the end, since anemones need pristine waters continuing to feed and fail like this will cause parameter issues and get in the way of you successfully keeping this anemone.

MrX what light did you use? I'm in the same boat with my green BTA. I'd like to do something similar. What type of LEDs? Thanks

Believe it or not, that floodlight was a plain old 5000k LED flood from a wholesale store called Ollies. It's like a Big Lots, if you have one of those. I haven't seen those since then though, because I wanted to get a few more, as they were only 20 bucks. Home depot and Lowes are carrying an assortment of these for like 25-50 dollars, and also the Reef hobby stores have them now too, but they have added some blues and are selling them for 50-80 dollars. Typical.

I was looking up small led fixtures, do you think a strip of 13.8 watt would work? I know nothing about lights. Hubby does all that stuff.

You need something strong enough. I would use one of those PAR 38 lamps.
