Well I threw a pinch of flake food in the tank and it if flaying on the surface and the clownfish don't seem to want it. Every now and then one will grab a piece and then spit it out. The frozen food last night they devoured

I think I posted this earlier. I've always fed frozen food or the following from reef nutrition.

Try making it a little more ground up. If they haven't eaten it after a few minutes you can take it out. Also try keeping the pinch in your fingers and putting it just below the surface so it doesn't just float on top. With clean hands of course.

It will take some time for them to adjust. Don't panic.
