Maroon clown diet?

So I got a white banded maroon clown and he loves pellets but I bought some frozen mysis shrimp and he won't touch them. Is it ok to just feed him pellets? Im using new life.

Mine was fed strictly pellets for 5 years. She's now around 5 inches and healthy as can be. I have started feeding her brine shrimp along with pellets since I've had her though.

Get garlic rx and put a few drops right on the frozen food, he will eat that for sure.. Garlic is an appitite stimulant

I will try that. I watched him closely yesterday and came to realize he's not actually eating the pellets either! He goes crazy after a few but spits some of it back out. I don't get it.
