If it is just floating around I would place it somewhere w/ low light and flow w/ something to attach to such as a piece of LR. As Lance said, if it continues to drift around that is not a good sign. As said light acclimation can be very stressful, especially when going from lower to higher light conditions. I would highly recommend using the screen method to photo-acclimate the BTA. HTH and good luck.

hmmm... my ocellaris clowns are picking on it.. looks like they're trying to get a chunk off it.. so my bta shrinks back and hides whenever they do that.. this normal behavior?.. I guess they don't like it..

Send a message via AIM to Lance M.
Clownfish will clean the anemone off when it shrinks up and expells waste. I've never seen a clownfish attacking an anemone.

well it was like taking a bite out of it... and then the BTA shrinks back and hides... I don't know... my clowns are pretty old and lived with a humu trigger for a long time.. and it hasn't seen an anemone before.. but then, I'm just guessing... that's what I saw.. It doesn;t really attack violently but kinda like nips on it.. in a gentle way
