For what it is worth I would cut the clip down to a couple of times a week. No sense adding it every day. I add a clip once a week or so, or dump some (rinsed off) macro algae from my 24 gallon nano that grows like a weed. Odd that the dwarf does not eat it....
My bi-color will eat whatever I put into the tank. Mysis, live brine, angel formula, pellet, whatever. It took a couple of months for him to start doing this, but he will eat everything I put in there except krill. I know these guys are herbivores, you can tell from the comb-like teeth (check your glass, you can see the tooth marks in the algae after they bite off some) but mine has started eating meat..... I dunno why.
