I think what you have now is the least I would go. I think you have just under 5wpg. The color change I'm not sure about. Unless it's just an inflating thing where when it blows up more, it's lighter in color. It would make sense that it would be more colorful/darker at night as it deflates closing up for the night. As for the shrimp, I had a shrimp that used to pick on a bta. It would steal the food. I caught it doing that and chased it away. Next time I looked, the food and shrimp were gone and the anemone was closed up. I can't guarantee the anemone consumed the cleaner shrimp but, it was gone and never seen again after that. My lta is very sticky and closes around the food quickly. Nothing would pull food from it. lol Being new to the tank, it may take a bit for it to take food as eagerly. And yes, you are right in that anemones get most of it's food through the lighting, that's why lighting is so important. But, feeding from time to time is ok too. You just wouldn't want to feed it daily. I nice mix of the two is IMO perfect.

Thanks, I did feed him a piece of shrimp that he closed over, he seemed eager. Well, if he does decide to have live cocktail shrimp, I hope he's hungy because I have two in there!

Here's a pic of him, whom my husband calls "your enema" or "you emenie" (maybe he'll learn) while he was squished up against the rock, he had fallen and he couldn't get up. He moved during the night, so he's in a better place now. If he stays like that, I can live with it because, well, I did pay for him, I'd kind of like to see his face, not his rear end!

FYI, I wanted to help him when he fell over, just a little, but my husband quoted your advice, he wouldn't let me touch the guy!
