A list of everything in my tank, tell me what to feed them.

All the animals in my tank, ive researched thoroughly, but every site/book says something different. I'm pretty new to the hobby and i dont have a lot of time to sit and hand feed each little creature because i work and am a full time Marine Bio student. Here's the list, if you can, give me a list of what to feed them and how many times a day.

2- Wild Clownfish
2- Scissor Tail Dartfish
1- Coral Beauty Angelfish
1- Valentini Puffer
1- Green Clown Goby
1- Green Mandarin
1- Black Sail-Fin Blenny
1- Sea Cucumber
1- Sand Sifting Sea Star
1- Cleaner Shrimp
+several little snails/crabs (algae janitorial service)



As of right now i feed them the following:

Chopped Squid
Brine Shrimp
Algae Wafers
Flake Food
Clownfish Pellets with garlic
Lettuce tied to rock


They all seem to be happy, water quality is pristine, and everyone in the tank is friendly with one another.


What do you guys think?[/b]

I've heard some mixed feelings about using lettuce as fish food.

I've heard the same. Nori may be a better option. Has more natural nutrition.
Also, (and I'm sure someone will disagree) I would consider mysis shrimp instead of brine. Adult brine lacks nutritional value. Or even try some of the San Fransisco brand frozen foods.... Good stuff IMO.

I use the S.F. Plankton (pretty big sized plankton if you ask me) and they all love it.

I agree with quarryshark in that mysis is a better choice then brine. What ever you feed, do not under-estimate the importance of supliments. When I thaw I foods I add a few drops of GarlicGuard, some Selcon and some Vita-Chem.
