large pieces of food can stress an anemone out. I know mine will take just about any size food into its "stomach" completely but it will spit it out after a short time because its too big and my nem is about 8-10" in diameter. I feed it a small silverside now but when it was smaller i had to only feed it bite size pieces or it would spit it back out.

First off they never need fed if you have the right conditions and proper lighting, second off, they expend a large amount of energy to digest food, that's why they feed off of high lighting, it uses no energy, you can kill them feeding them chucks of food

Yep. Well fed anemones will split with additional stressors.

never feed nems, one thing I have noticed, (this pict is from when I first switched to led's) now that they have been under led's for a few months, their tentacles are bigger and puffier but only on the rbta and not on the gbta. Will have to get a after picture
