Feeding a clownfish
I was feeding some tubifex to my rainbows and decided to toss a couple in my marine tank. The clown sucked it down greedily. In fact, this is the only food which elicits such a vigorous feeding response from him. I've tried frozen marine cuisine, mysis shrimp, and he seems to show little interest in it. But he also eats flakes and freeze dried brine shrimp.
I remembered reading that marine fish should be fed marine-based foods. But then I remembered reading with a new fish (mine's spent less than a month in the tank), you find out what it likes and feed him a lot of it.
So you can see my dilemma. Is it okay to continue feeding him tubifex?
Fish are friends, not food.
