You can feed it whenever it's "buff" up. Don't feed it when its shrinking (light's out).

I do not advocate target feedings at all for anemones. If you feed the tank appropriately and have enough lighting there is no need.

I concur, cannot recall the laste time I taget feed. Rock flowers filter feed and my BTA gets feed by the maroons.

If you must a small piece of shrimp or some mysis once a week should be plenty when it is out.

Ok I was wondering if it would just filter out the water. My clown doesn't host it but I'm getting a wild-caught clown this weekend so it should host the bta soon and get the tank raised one to go with it.

There is no guarantee that the wild caught one will host your anemone. There is a good chance though. I agree that you don't have to feed your anemone if you have the proper lighting and tank conditions.
