What exactly do you feed it? I was thinking like frozen shrimp would be good since we have a lot of it in my house.

Small bits of frozen shrimp will be good, but are not the solution to the long term problem you already brought up. Upgrade the lights!

I feed them small meaty food.

Once a month some live feeder fish's from LFS, not the goldfish. It allows my clown to play with them.

My clown would bite the fish tail and pull it to the anemone. Then the clown would proceed to feed next one.

What size of tank is it?
And just be careful when feeding. Too large of food and it will not only be stressful to the anemone, but will have it expend more energy than it will gain from the food. This can further the downgrading/bleaching before you get your new lights.

Don't keep an anemone if you don't have the proper environment to take care of it. What size tank and what lighting do you currently have?
