Is my BTA dying?

He's been in my 10ga tank for 4 days...his condition has been deteriorating ever since I brought him home.20190509_181325.thumb.jpg.541538c094a91b1520e8cab5795d3dd1.jpg20190509_180922.thumb.jpg.2498e58e92219708d13a9c3f300caab2.jpg20190509_180901.thumb.jpg.833c972e5e6de36a8168f9ee24862247.jpg

Give it time to adjust. They do some wierd things. It will displace it's old water and intake your tank water. It should bounce back in time. I got my first bta in February and it seems to have just settled in earlier this month.

That's what I keep reading...just wasn't too sure on my end. It's funny, about 30min later now his tentacles are more upright. Just not at all the same as when he was at the LFS. I'll just keep waiting it out. 

 

Should I try and feed in the meantime? I dropped him 3 mysis shrimp yesterday and he gobbled them up pretty fast, one by one.

I'd hold off feeding if you can til it gets settled. They use a ton of energy to eat when the should be using it to adjust to your tank. Theyll get most of their food from light anyway.
