I'd give it some time before feeding the nem. Also, nems dont require feedings. All it's food comes from the light. As long as you have a good source of lighting you shouldn't have to worry about feeding it.

+1 Also, the BTA will get some food if the clown is hosting it tin the form of fish poop. Pleasant, I know. Lol
