Anemones

I read the following from an article -> "anemones need to be fed with brine shrimp, pieces of fresh fish, or shrimp, unless kept with a clownfish." Does this means that if kept with a clownfish. we dun have to feed the anemone?

Most anemones will benefit greatly by feeding them with peices of fresh shrimp and fish...When a Clown is involved, they will most likely drag food to the anemone at feeding time... I think a few people here have this happen at feeding time... You could still feed the anemone once a week, even if a Clown is involved, however, the Clown might defend its territory and nip at your hands... This would be normal though.. In any case, the anemone can only benefit from feeding, and will also grow faster and in some cases multiply.

Unless it's a different tank....some details can be found >>here<< and >>here<<.

And to continue sounding like a broken record...have you taken care of the ammonia problem and reduced the number of fish in your tank?

Anemones multiply in captivity? I've always heard such nightmares about how hard they are to keep alive. This is surprising.

Not suprising at all. I started with one, and now have 4.

This varies among species but for the most part Bob's success is among the exceptions and not the norm. Hopefully, with more daughter colonies being produced, hardier anemones can be introduced commonly into the trade. Until then, mortality rates will likely remain high.

How do you get the food into the anemones mouth? My current is very chaotic, I am afraid it would get blown away.
