Feeding

I am currently feeding my 2 clownfish marine pellets that the aquarium owner suggested. These pellets are very small and I notice that when I feed my clownfish, the powerheads immediately blow the pellets away from the fish. Should I shut the powerheads off during feeding or will the fish eventually get the food??....Thanks

If that is the case then yes, turn the water flow down or off. A variety of mixed foods is best in order to meet overall nutritional needs. Do a 'search' to find the varied food mixes you can make yourself.

I feed mine a variety also. Mysis, Flake and vitamin fortified Brine. Yes you might need to cut off the powerheads so they can eat.
