My Zoos eat flakes

It's weird. Everytime I feed my maroon clown and BHT marine flakes, my zoos always catch a few of them, then slowly closes up into a ball. Then when they open, magic, it's gone.

Is there any drawback to that?

No. Just make sure you are not overfeeding the tank. If I throw flake in my tank it never makes it to the bottom. My fish are pigs.

Well, I normally feed them coral excel and DT's phyto in the morning. Then some flake for the fish that never makes it to the shrooms. Then in the evening I feed my fish some brime and/or pellet. That's when I noticed some pellets landed on some shrooms. The shrooms would close up in a min. or 2, then open back up after 10 to 30 min. and wouldn't ya know... the pellets were gone. I have also give them some brime now and then.
