No, that would not work. Along w/ being the right size, it has to be live to stimulate a feeding response. I've heard of using rotifers, or copepods if you can raise enough of them. Rotifers are easiest to culture, and are very nutritious, in part b/c of the phytoplankton they feed on. The number of fry that would survive to adulthood using dead foods, would be very low, if any.

Ah ok, it says the plankton is live, but I will take your word for it if I ever take the plunge and use rotifers. Do you have any good sources to read about going about this?

It's actually not alive. Some phytoplanktons are able to be bottled and sold alive but not zooplankton-AFAIK. I know cyclopeeze is not able to be kept alive in a bottle, and that seems to be a primary ingredient of that product. Also that product said it can be stored in a freezer which rules out the possibility it is alive. FWIW sometimes frozen/dried cyclopeeze can be used as a second food source for clown fry, but you'll need something smaller, ie rotifers or copepods, and alive as a first food source.
Joyce Wilkersons "Clownfishes- A guide to their captive care, breeding and Natural History" -that should contain everything you need if you're serious about trying this.

Always heard of florida aqua farms being good for cultures... never ordered from them though, but had this page bookmarked forever.
