BTA tentacles not sticky?

Ok, so my BTA are hanging in there and still alive. I attempted feeding them frozen shrimp over the weekend and the one would put it in it's mouth but didn't seem to do anything with it. And the other one wouldn't pick any of it up. As if it's tentacle's are not sticky at all. Has this happened to anyone else? What does that mean?

How big were the pieces? It's not natural for them to eat anything big. On a reef, nothing large makes it down to them. It would have been eating by the other reef dwelling fish. I've had my sebae anemone around 9 yrs now and never once directly fed it.
