Is this normal?

Hello everybody my name is Jason and this is my first post I have been reading the forums for month or so now and I finally have a question of my own so any ways I woke up this morning and my true percula started hosting my bta and I'm so freaking happy it isn't funny but I notice the clown forcefully enters the anemones mouth and seems to steal it's food is this normal? I thought they where supposed to feed the anemone not steal it's food

Yea he is and it looks like the mouth is starting to gape a little but he seems ok for the most part I was just wondering if this a normal behavior cause if anything I might over feed the fish and don't understand why he would want the anemones food thanks for any help
