Looks good to me. If it isnt moving around, extending tentacles, and mouth isnt widespread open then all is well. Color is also an indicator as they bleach just like coral if there isnt enough light.

Looks bleached. Probably an indicator it doesn't have sufficient lighting.

When my green bta got ill, he would close up all the way. You could barely see him out of the rocks. Then he just turned to mush.

Pristine water conditions, proper lighting, and some spot feeding. Spot feeding will help IMO since bleaching is it expelling its zoo and will get some food in his belly for recovery.

^^^^yep, careful with feeding start with very small portions no more than twice a week. Takes a lot of energy for nem digestion so go slow with it or it could make problems worse.
