they aren't bad. they are actually good. they are a free "cleanup crew" if there is such a thing, but a rapid rise in population means there is an abundance of food.

Well overfeeding shouldn't be the only food I put in my tank is brine shrimp that I put in two or three at a time. After my clowns eat that I put two or three more until they stop swarming it. And I do that only every other day. I bought a trap today and put it in at 10:30pm, at 12:15am had three and I dumped it, reloaded it and I'm going to wait and see what's in there in the morning... Hope this works well .................

you should be feeding more than brine shrimp. brine itself is not very nutritious.
3 cubes of frozen brine is a lot of food IMO, especially in a 28 gallon tank.

Not three cubes, three shrimp. I use a spoon after I thawed them in a lttle salt water from the tank. I put three or four pieces in after they eat that I put two or three more in until they lose intrest in the food then I stop. The pet store said that's what they needed. What else should I be feeding?

Good flake or pellet food is more nutritious than brine shrimp. I like New Spectrum flakes with garlic; the fishes like it a lot it seems too. Also I use Ocean Nutrition pellets.
