I was just curious what the staple food for your anemone is, and how often they were fed. That way I can buy different foods for it to keep on hand. The one we got last night was fed fresh shrimp and clams every 3-4 days.

Do you shell the shrimp? I fed some squid this morning, but had some new corals fall, so it spit it out when I was messing around in the tank, so a few hours later we picked up some fresh Maine raw shrimp, and fed it a 1/4 inch or so piece of raw shelled shrimp and it ate it in about an hour.

I think our clowns are starting to take an interest, they haven't hosted it yet, but after lights out we saw them eying it, and swimming very close to it, thumbs2:
