I feed my clowns formula two frozen tonight and they didn't seem to care to much for it. (kept spitting it out.) Is this normal behavoir? I guess like me they prefer steak to salad!

also, I am going to set up a schedule for them.
Fridays and tuesdays will be veggie night, and Mondays, Wednesdays, thursdays, saturdays, and sundays will be meat night.

Is this cool? or should I increase the amount of veggies they get?

RocketSeason, they spit it out if it's too big for them. Are yours bitty? Mine are under 2" and I have to chop the frozen food up very small for them. They can't even eat the small Formula pellets. If you've only got the two fish, here's my tip: use a carrot peeler to scrape off a little bit of the cube; the edge of the peeler will mash it smaller if you need to. No need to defrost that way.

I only feed them part of the cube a day.

I chop it into very fine chunks and "defrost" in a cup of water taken from the tank. They do fine with the size, they just inhale a portion of it and then spit most of it back out.

Well, then, I guess they're just picky!
