Feeding Anemones

Hi,

The LFS told me to get some frozen fish bait, defrost it and feed that to my anemones, but I am concerned about disease.

Should I be? What else can I do to feed my anemones other than light?

Thanks.

I buy cooked shrimp , crab , meat, and scallops and then freeze them. I feed small thawed pieces about 2X a week.

Cooked ones? Are there any benefits of cooked ones? I would have thought thawed ones would have been better?

Cooked prevents the introduction of parasites and such. I've had great results so far. I believe that one of the advisors on this forum suggeted to cooked to me last year.

I am going to have to upgrade tank size soon as mu condy has tripled in size in about 4 months.

you can feed silversides or krill once or twice a week. I have never target feed my anemnes, they just get what they get at feeding time.

So you just go to your local seafood store (for human consumption) and buy cooked bits of seafood and feed that?

question.. about the krill, what kind of krill are you feeding ? I have some freeze dried krill and plankton.. will this work for him?

I also have a plethora of frozen food ranging from hikari marine food to brine shrimp and some various ocean nutrition cubes..

what would be best for it besides light (which seems to be nice for it)

Okay, so I am confused about whether or not to buy precooked fish from the seafood store, or to buy raw fish (say, anchovies, etc) and cook them myself to kill bacteria and parasites, etc.

??

I just buy the precooked - keeps the house from smelling like seafood.
