Spoiled fish for sure whats next some diced filet mignon and a glass of red wine. maybe take the fish out for a movie with an evening fin massage. (just kidding) the rice part surprised me.. I don't know of anywhere around me locally that sells live seafood I am about 3hours from Seattle where there is lots of it. I just got a cuisinart food processor for christmas what could I buy at the local grocery store that my clownfish would like

Do a search on 'blnder mush' or 'home made fish food' and you'll find all kinds of recipes. Mostly it's buy any fresh non-fatty seafood e.g. clams, prawns, fish fillet (remember to use marine fish fillet to feed saltwater fish), scallops, fish eggs, shrimp, and mussels. Freezing seafood before using it will kill some types of parasites.

Most grocery stores sell the basic mush ingredients. I use shrimp, cod, scallops, seaweed, garlic, selcon and Zoe in my mix. This is pretty basic but they like it.

I think the food makes a huge difference in the growth and health. I went to the local fish store today where I got my mated pair of ocellaris clownfish. They had some still from that same batch another customer who had fry gave the batch to them. When I bought my mated pair they were tiny only like 3 weeks old. 3months later they still have some of the same fry still they are much bigger than my clownfish is now. And the lady at the LFS said that the ones the other customer kept were much bigger than the ones the LFS had.
