Feeding advice?

Well my 60 gal just finished cycling. About two days ago I added 2 clownfish. Everything is going good.. But I find it a little difficult to feed them. They like to stay in the bottom corner of the tank. With an overflow and the powerheads only a little bit of food gets to where the clown fish are. I try to target feed them... But with my tank being 24 in deep the return from my sump creates just enough current to blow the food away b4 it gets to the fish. Any ideas how I can feed them better?

yep. I've had my clowns for a month and they would swim up to about 2 inches away from my hand when I'm near the tank. Most of the time, they would stay in their corner

I still have to turn off my flow to feed mine LOL. I think I have mentally defective fish. But it gets the job done.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Lol. Yeah I just made a batch of homemade food. They are getting more active around the tank now. And man do they love the fresh homemade frozen food. It consists of: scallops, cod, shrimp, talapia, garlic, broccoli, carrots, and nori sea weed.
