Brine shrimp, very very small pieces of mashed fish, or it really likes it when I strip slivers off the ends of the tails of raw shrimp. I turn off my PHs and place the food in the mouth of the frogspawn. Then I cover it with a coke bottle half that I cut some holes in to keep it from getting mugged for its food.

the mouth is in the center of the frog spawn he would only show it to me after the lights were out. but you will see a slit in the center and there will be no bubble things in that area. and you will know it is a mouth when you see it. but mine has died so i will not get to see if he likes all that food too till my lighting is upgraded and my tank has been up for a longer time. but i will still keep getting soft corals they are ez to take care of.
