Got a big carpet anemone

Couldn't resist and bought a huge carpet anemone for my 8 foot tank. It's gotta be 12 inch in diameter. I have several other corals I target feed so he won't be an exception. Planning to feed him krill, shrimp, small chunks of fish and silversides.
Anyone have any experience and tips for me for these guys?

Don't feed it too much. Maybe a half a silverside once or twice a week. It's stressful to the anemone to process large amounts of food. It really doesn't need feeding at all if you have decent lighting.
They have been known to swallow an occasional fish too, so if any turn up missing, you know where it went.
