    Keep trying different foods. The clowns aren't benefiting the anemone at this point and no, they don't "feed" the anemone. They should be fed separately from the fish to truly get "enough" and actually do well.

    Should only need to get the food to it tentacles and they'll attach to the food. Any way that's how mine feeds.

    That's true, Greg, but only for healthy animals. Unhealthy ones will not have a proper prey capture response, unfortunately.

    In any case, owl, don't put food in the mouth or you risk damaging it. Always try to sit it on the tentacles. If it doesn't accept one food, try others (silversides, clam, squid, mysis shrimp--anything). If that doesn't work, you can only provide appropriate conditions, including lighting, flow, substrate, etc. and hope for the best.

    My rose didn't eat at first either and the things that worked with it eventually were the super smelly things like clams and squid. Not sure, but it's worth a try. Also, my clown steals from my anenome, he doesn't feed him. Just a thought.

    I think I would just watch it for a few days. They can act strange at times.
