The key is variety. there is no one single food that will work for all types of fish. Try nori or seaweed salad for the grazers, a combo of froozen mysis (NOT brine), krill or squid for the meat eater. Remember to feed light, over feeding will cause an increase in waste products and unstable water parameters.

To give you an idea, i have a royal gramma and a percula clown (false). I have bio blend mini-pellets, formula 1 and formula 2 frozen foods, and mysis shrimp. sometimes I'll give them a pinch of omega flake food, but not very often at all.

they LOVE the formula 1&2 cubes.. I used to cut pieces off, but that's a pain, so I thaw a whole cube, give them a pinch, and the rest goes into my 75 gallon freshwater tank.
Former advisor and planted tank geek...life's moved on though.
