I'm using the regular test kit that comes with PH, Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate, that's all reading PH -8.2 , Ammonia-0, Nitrite-0, Nitrate-0 waiting about 10 min for results. Then I'm using a Cal tester that reads 450, and the Meg test reads 1140 I'm working on bring that up. And the Alk test is 11.

So, they are liquid test kits, not strips, correct? API is the brand? What salt mix are you using?

It's been behind this rock for a couple of days now. Don't know if you can see but it's extended really far out. Is this ok ? Is it normal for BTA to do this ? Click image for larger version

Yes. As long as it's reaching out for light it's cool. Have you tried a small piece of food recently?

Nothing yet I might wait one more day to feed it. Do you think if I get a clown to host it would it benefit the BTA ?

The relationship between clowns and anemones are hit or miss. If it happens, it happens and there isn't a way to make it happen or even if it will be beneficial or stressful. Clowns too large and an anemone too small can be stressful...if they decide to do their thing. I had a pair of clowns in my tank ever since it was established back in 2012 (the one that is currently running that is) and added an anemone once the tank was ready for one. They had ZERO interest in each other up until several months ago.
If it was up for the health of your anemone, I would continue as things are currently. Keep parameters stable and pristine. Under these conditions it will thrive, as it was already determined the lighting will do. I personally wouldn't feed it, but if you do decide to make sure that the pieces are very small so there isn't additional stress put on the anemone.
