He's just acclimating to your tank Brenden. I would give it a week or even two before offering food, rather it's bulbed up or not. Offering food when it's not necessary or wanted is more harmful than not feeding at all. Give him some time to settle in. It's hard to say how an anemone is gonna do in only a few hours. It sometimes takes days, even weeks for them to settle and be comfortable in it's happy spot. Also, when feeding, a happy healthy anemone will grab food at the slightest touch. It's not necessary to shove it toward the mouth or to try and coax it to eat. Good luck with it.

It shrinks up to expel waste. Maybe it blew up in advance of expelling to help the process. Where was he before the main? QT or bag? I have 3 GBTAs in my main. One is huge and gorgeous with some tips bubbled. The other 2 hide all the time and have small tentacles. I wish I understood the rhyme/reason behind it all!

It is doing better already. He moved last night and when I turned the lights on he started to move. I agree he will be ok in time. Thanks to all

It has been "blown up" like the picture all day. I guess it found a spot it likes. Oddly enough it went to a low light area.

It was "fat and happy" all day yesterday. I walked by the tank 5am this morning and it was stuck to the intake. I turned the pump off and went back to bed. Woke up this morning and it was stuck there. I pulled it lose. Some tentacles were stuck in the screen. I put it in the refugium with low current to "rest" 2 hours later it had inflated its body so I put it back in the main. It inflated fully a short time later and moved up under a rock and has stayed there inflated ever since. I guess he is still looking for his "home"

I`ve had mine for a couple years and he`s still on the move. Had a busy week Brian, I`ll work on that this week about the stars.
