Feeding your Anemone you decide.

Just want to see how many people out there actually feed there Anemone's. Me personally I don't feed them they get what ever I throw into the tank.

I dont have one now but when I did I did not target feed it. IMO they get all they need from the water column and lighting. Also your clowns will feed them too.

Nice, you guys and gals are correct. If you have enough light there is no need to feed your RBTA. Feedings would help if you don't have enough light. The best way is to get enough light and let your tank do the rest.

Start with some silversides and feed it once a week. Use your hand to wave the sliverside on to trigger the anemones feeding response.
