    I would much rather hear it passed on due to stress than to hear you lost your tank because of its pollutants it releases when it dies... just be careful & baby it along... try to give it food more than you usually feed it. If its eating than it can't be all to bad.... & don't over power its lighting... it should make it but make sure you test water quality a little more frequently to be on safe side..

    Would it be able to live off of regular room lighting?

    I'm not sure.. I would say no.. but if you could set up close to DT to get overflow of light it might help... keep in mind that if you are keeping a close eye on it & testing water frequently & it acts like its getting a little better (inflation/deflation) than you might not have to move it... IMO I would get some Minos then cut into a couple small chunks, rinse nasty off with r/o water & try to feed it.. don't push it though because it doesn't have all tentacles to help draw in food.. these are things I've done with my rbtas.. 1 rbta got caught in a suction tube for filter.. other got a power head lightly... I have 3 total in my tank.. keep me updated..

    No, not room light. Put a 60W-100W CF bulb above it or something.
