What I've been told by one LFS
owner is that anemones are in a sense part of a clean up crew. They use their tentacles to sting/catch sick or dead fish and eat them up. Kind of makes sense but he could be wrong.
There are also videos on YouTube of clowns, especially clarkii and maroons feeding their anemones big chunks of frozen food in aquariums. So it seems like anemones do eat quite a bit in the wild.
Mine does ok without target feeding so I don't bother.
