Feeding a Rose BTA

What and how often do you feed Rose BTA's?

The guy at my local LFS actually says that he feeds for his own pleasure (monthly) as they catch "flotsam" ummhumm I feed my anemone(s) at least weekly a sizeable piece of shrimp or fish (buy your shrimp from the seafood section whole.
when you lose a fish....... Your BTA just gained a meal--mine enjoyed a beautiful mandarin Goby last week. He enjoys many fish as my LFS sells quite a few 'soon to be dead' fish. I am no expert as the only existing anemone I have is a Dahlia.
I have bought 3 dead ones from my lfs.

Has anyone ever used Prime Reef cubes for the BTA?

I have never target fed any of my BTAs. They get what they get from the water colume at feeding time. Both my rose and my green have split for me.
