You'll need to add another. If you add another of the same you'll have 384 watts total and will open up your options on several types of compatable coral as well as having enough lighting for the anemone.

Even with the proper lighting, an anemone should be offered meaty foods about once a week. Squid seems to be a favorite as well as silversides and krill.

I didn't have any meaty foods available yesterday, but I fed him some of the green stuff we got for the clowns and the anemone is looking a lot better this morning than he normally does before the lights have been on for a while. Do we feed him frozen (but thawed) food or does it need to be live?

Thanks,
Kimberly

It can be thawed or live. I don't know what live foods you'd feed it. May be entertaining for some to watch an anemone mack on a damsel...LOL. A friend's first 90 gallon reef he had an anemone at the end of a water pump flow and everytime a fish got in this current, it got blasted right into the anemone. Needless to say, he moved the water pump. Too expensive of a menu going on.

I would feed considering your tank isnt that old and the lights are quit enough, if you are feeding your fish(which i hope you are) he should get some little peices of left over food floating around. but i target feed mine with silverslides about once a week and it seems to be working good. hope he gets better

I get so sick of reading watts per gal. Watts is the amount of elec power it takes to burn the darn thing not how much light it puts out. How many laminas dose a 400 watt metal halogen light put out How many florescent bulbs dose it take to equal the same or exceed this? If you have the right type of florescent lighting you can get more light from less wattage. But are you getting the right type of light? that is why they make so many deferent types of bulbs for the deferent spectrum. You probably just need to feed this anemone by hand some clam or shrimp just cut up some clam meat into small peace lay it on the anemone mouth and it should eat it right up. good luck. Research the light metal halogens are none fire hazard they can explode and the hot metal inside can land on the floor and burn down the house. Read up on them. Some insurance companies are rasing the cost to insure factories and warehouses that use them because of the danger.

I feed my BTA every other week some frozen squid pieces. They need to be fed some. I believe this coupled with the lighting problem could be your problem. Have a good day
