Feeding

I am feeding my clown (i only have one) the others r a shrimp, blenny and tang. None of which seam to eat the MYSIS shrimp, except for the clown. Hes a juvenile about an 1"- 1-1/4" long. How many should i feed it at a time, casue its a glutton, and dont wanna overfeed it.

i wouldnt expect the tang to eat live food, because it is mainly a herbivore.

You can try a little garlic juice, that can stimulate a feed response. I lace all my frozen food with it. Also there is a theory that it helps protect the fish from parasitic diseases.
As for your tang, have you tried dry seaweed, such as nori?

You need to QT that fish immedately and treat him. Be sure to watch your other fish for signs of ich as well. It will easily infect every fish in the tank.

Feed Garlic soaked foods this may help you some. Feeding depends on how many times a day you feed. Some feed 2 small portions a day & some feed once a day.
Just feed enough they can eat the food in a few minutes.
