I have a scooter and he doesnt eat algae or seaweed. He eats pods and bloodworms luckily. It took me WEEKS to get him to eat prepared foods.

Good luck!

Can I have an exact description of prepared foods? Home-made? Store bought?

I consider prepared foods either frozen, jars or homemade. prepared food is pretty much not the natural food a fish eats in the wild I guess you would say. lol It's packaged and ready to eat. Kinda like fast food for fish

Guys my clown still won't leave his rock. He eats very little and when he goes to jump on the food and eat it he spits it back up. Help the damsel straight ignores the clown and swims happily in the tank along with the blennie. I can't sew what could be wrong :/

I turn off my flow when I feed since my fish are spazz's lol.

I wouldnt have a bubbler or anything like that running either, the only things you should have for flow are the powerheads and the filter. No bubblers in sw
