I have a good number of fish that don't eat flake/pellets. I didn't really notice at first, but when I would throw one of my mysis cubes, everyone takes part in the frenzy. Then if there is any left over or gets caught in the filter/powerhead, I pull it out and feed to my duncans.

Mine prefer brine in garlic to mysis, far less nutritious though.

In my experience clowns love all food. Mine eat brine,mysis, cyclops and they go crazy over it all. I don't feed flake food however so they always get these 3. I mix them up and feed them all 3 at the same time. They don't seem to pick Anything over anything else.

Rinsing is a must. Don't just that and throw in. Like KIO said, the water they're packed in full of phosphates.
