    What would be good corals to place next to a BTA? It seems like everytime mine stretches, it kills whatever it touches and the rocks look bare 12" around it.

    None. That's what anemones do, and that's why some people won't have one in a reef tank. Corals are only resistant to stings from their own species.

    I wonder if a GSP or Xenia could handle it. Nothing seems to stop them

    of course yuu could get a variety of different colored anemones to spruce things up. I have 3 different colored RBTA's and one sebae along with a variety of corals no issues for me so far as my Nems luckily have stayed put from the first day in the tanks

    I have a Sabae as well. Both stay put, but the BTA likes to stretch out and it's a good 15" in diamater. So there's a lot of bare rock around it.

    Looks similar to one of mine. You may want to start your own thread asking this question, including your water parameters, tank details, equipment, etc. It looks ok.

    I placed blue symposium near my rbt. It spreads rather quick and is a beautiful blue. When it closes up, it’s still a beautiful blue. Look to the right of the rbt.
