How big are they, how long have they been in the tank, and what are your parameters?

My very small clown likes cyclopeeze, brine, pellets and flakes that are crushed up small. I guess the mysis must be too big for him. My bigger clown will eat anything, even steals food from the sun coral at times if I take the bottle off too soon. Lol.

Just make sure to put in one or two at a time. It's a pane to pick them out but just try it and let me know what happens

I'd try some garlic attractant, it's worked well for me in the past
