I've had my anemone 5-6 years. I never fed it.

Wow, seriously? Well I guess it lived on filtering what fish food the fish did not eat.

Tank, to be honest I dont know the formal name for the anemone i have, look at my photos of it, you may be able to tell me. An aquaintance that I was talking to yesterday told me a clown will not host the type that I have. Not too worried about it though, its cool to look at.

I have a GIANT RBTA that I never feed directly either. It gets bits of mysis from the clowns and when I feed my fish. Feeding an anemone regularly isn't as good for it as you may think. They burn a lot of energy digesting the food. As long as you have good lighting and excellent water conditions they don't need to be fed.

What kind of anemone do you have?

Here is a shot of my RBTA

Agree'd. Clowns dont usually host them as mentioned somewhere above.
