Ocellaris Clowns

I purchased two clowns over the weekend and we bought some pellet food for them. How often should we feed them frozen brine shrimp or is it not required? I know they can be bought in cubes but how much of the cube should we place into the aquarium?

The only things in the tank are two clown fish and some snails.

brine shrimp isnt much of a food for them more of a treat,mysis shrimp would be better,I would say1/3 of a cube once a week and pellets for the rest of the week.

I give mine pellets (what they can eat in about 1 minute) as a staple. About twice a week, I give mine a cube of brine shrimp. I have reason to put a 2/3 cube in (thawed of course), since I have 6 fish. They eat it quickly and love it.

I would recommend FormulaOne for the pellets. My fish LOVE them, and I would get the small kind.

I would feed the pellets about 2 or 3 times a day if you can, in small portions.
