I actually drip acclimate closer to 3 drops/sec for 60-90 minutes and then about 6 drops/sec for the remaining 30 to 90 minutes.

No, not anemones, only about 1 hour after temp acclimating.

If you spend the money, take the time to avoid possible problems.

I have one also. I had it under mh in the 90 tank and it tried to hide under the rocks. I've since moved it to a smaller tank with 130 watts of pc and am having to keep the light on the opposite end of the tank and moving it slowly to cover the whole tank eventually. When the lights are on he stays pretty much shrunk into his rock but when the lights go out he fully extends. I'm beginning to wonder about the recommendations for high lighting for these animals. I am not seeing it.

I agree my BTA is doing very good.....he has just relocated closer to my PC 130watt. He now stays on top of my live rock, nice and plump looking. I did however just start feeding him....after the advice of a club member. I just mash up some pellet fish food and add water and but in in a little turkey baster and squirt it at him
