Remember that anemones will get most of their energy from light. I have never target fed any of my BTA and they do great, even under 4x65watt CF lighting. It should get what ever else it needs through the water collum.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
