What is the best good for my green bubble tip? And how often should I feed it?

BTAs will eat squid, krill, silversides, mysis, table shrimp, scallop, to name just some of the options. A couple of times per week is fine, small pieces no larger than a small peanut is preferable. Larger pieces are likely to be ingested, only to be expelled a few hours later. Some people don't target feed their anemones at all, so the only food the anemone gets is food the fish don't eat first. The majority of a BTA's nutritional needs is met through the zooxanthellae that live in their tissues.

So target feeding him the same food the fish get (Rod's fish food) should do alright? Thanks in advance.

absolutely fine. I feed mine raw uncooked table shrimp now and then.

I have never fed my anemones. It is a hassle to spot feeding in my tank.

They are doing great with T5 lighting.

I will probably feed it every once in a while just to make sure it is happy. But it is sitting on 4 x 18 watt T5's 2 x blue 2 x 10k blues are on from 6am - 8 pm. The whites are on from 8am - 6pm. So should be plenty.

Mine gets whatever the eel is getting that day. Squid, shrimp, krill, scallop, crabmeat, etc. I feed the eel every 2-3 days so the anemones are on the same schedule.
