Just gave the green BTA a piece of food it took it in and is now eating it. Good sign I guess. Next step I'm going to take is get a better led light. Click image for larger version

Twice a week is plenty. Too much will also stress it.

Plant hangars can work. hook it to the wall behind. BTW, turn that light way down in the beginning, or it will cook your corals and anemone.

Once a week turn it up a notch. Watch your anemone. If it comes out and opens fully, it can take more, if it hides, it's too much.

Ok cool I really hope it comes out when I get this light on because I really hate where it's at now can't see it at all.
