Peppermint shrimp and Aptisia Anemones?

I have noticed about 6 or 7 small anemones (2-5mm) and thought my peppermint shrimp would eat them. The problem is that I do not want to make my shrimp feel stupid so I cannot just tell them where they are, so how do I get them to go to the table and eat?

Feed the anemone something the Shrimp would like to eat.

Maybe I do not know what I am calling an Aptisia Anemone, but these things are too small to feed and the shrimp only come out when I am gone so I do not know what they like to eat. I am at a loss. Thanks anyway.

2 - 5mm doesn't sound like any Aitpasia I know of. Can you describe them better?

If you start hand feeding your Shrimp they will be a lot more social and you'll get to see them a lot more often.
