What food does your clown like?

I've got an O clown which has been in QT for almost 2 weeks and has only eaten a few nibbles since I got him. He chases food around, but either spits it out or turns his nose up at it when he gets close. I've tried live brine (which he ate one or two of), frozen mysis, various small pellets and nori (figured I'd try)

I didn't see garlic juice when I went looking for it.. where would I find some?

any other tips? favorite foods?

everything mentioned here my clowns will eat. in fact the only picky fish I have is my royal gramma, and he's just not into pellet foods. Anything frozen he'll go after.

I feed mine Formula One frozen food and Formula Two frozen food.

They go crazy nuts for the stuff. Especially Formula One.
