Another option is Pacifica plankton, I got some of this on recommendation and my tank loves it.

Why buy prepared food? Far better and more cost efficient to make your own. Only thing better than that is live foods.

Greg, that's because i travel a lot for my job and most of the time i just have some flakes/pellets in the automatic feeder. when i do come home, i try to feed frozen. i have subscribed to the thread that Mr.X made about DIY fish food just for future references.

I HATE feeding my aquarium frozen food!!!

Yes, we both believe in home made foods. Several threads on this forum about it. I understand your traveling. But when home, it's as easy to feed home made food as it is dried foods and it's much better for the fish. And cheaper. Well maybe not easier than flake foods.

I slice my frozen cubes up and divide them into individual portions. I put this into individual to go dressing cups with lids and I add ground up flakes, just a tiny bit, and add a teaspoon of tank water. Than I pop them in the freezer. This is so my son can feed the fish when I am out if town. He just thaws it for about 5 minutes, first. Has worked out well for 2 months .

My clowns like brine shrimps like candies. Sometime they don't eat flake food as they're manipulating me to give them more brines shrimps instead flakes ^.^

I'm single and live by myself. my girlfriend is not going to drive 1hr just to feed my fish especially when she thinks I spent too much time on the tank already
