Frozen Food or Dry Flakes

Just curious, is it best to feed dry Flakes or frozen Brine Shrimp or both? We also alternate days with frozen Mysis Shrimp.
I have a Clown and a couple Tangs, damsels, Peppermint Shrimps, Corals, and Anemone's.
Any suggestions??

Personally i use a mix of marine pellet food and frozen clyclop-eze as well as blended raw shrimp that i freeze. Brine shrimp have very little nutritional value so i choose not to feed them those. I mix up what i feed em' cause i wouldnt want to eat the same thing everyday LOL. For example one day they get marine pellets one day cyclop-eze and then shrimp the next. Oh and i put Nori in for my Blennie to munch on. I try and make sure i have something every resident likes. IMOthe most important thing is to mix it up and not to overfeed !

home made, blended seafood/nori mush works well. The fine particles feed the mushrooms, polyps, corals well, and the chunks are great for the anenome. I soak mine in zoe before feeding.

Teri's recepie gets great reviews from everyone who's tried it. As soon as I have more than a sea urchin and a damsel to feed, I'll be adopting it I'm sure.

Sounds cool. Where is a good place to get some of the ingriedents? I live 97 miles from the nearest big town, so an online merchant would be best.
Thanks,
Zero
