That's true. Many people have great success without ever feeding them. Most of those people house them in large tanks with lots if fish and the nem gets some food from bits that float into them. Other people have clowns that will feed them. Still others have masses of light which helps them out.
If they're in a small tank without very intense light feeding them directly, even if it's only occasionally, may not be a bad idea. They can be difficult to keep anyway. I generally believe that underfeeding would is better than overfeeding. I'm no authority though. -_-
