I have 4 bubble tip anemones that do as they’re told and eat when I feed them. I have a ritteri anemone that I have a hard time getting it to hold onto food. I only feed the bta’s about once a week. But I’ve been trying to feed the ritteri daily as all of Googles resources tell me is appropriate. Lol! I typically use a loooong tweezer to slide the food into the loving arms of my anemones. The ritteri seems to hold onto it for a short while and then let it go. Any tips would be appreciated.

I have long tube anemones, rock flower anemones and several bubble tip anemones. They will all "eat on command", but I find it's easiest to just turn off the pump, keep the wavemakers going and mix in some calanus and zooplankton. Plus whatever 'meaty' foods they happen to spear when I'm feeding the fish are an added bonus. They honestly seem happiest when I just leave them alone and let them do their thing.

Guess I need to hit up my lfs for some add'l foods. Thx!
