Have you use garlic to stimulate eating yet? It is supposed to boost their immune systems as well.

Unrelated to our tanks, fishermen can buy it as an attractant as well.

Garlic does work I know first hand & also it is supposed to boost the immune systems.

I just got 2 clowns I am feeding them omega one marine flakes with garlic. And San Francisco bay brand marine cuisine frozen food .
Just a tiny sliver of the frozen food and it lasts forever.

I have been feeding twice a day
First day flake food both times
Second day flake in morning and frozen in the evening.
Just keep alternating

The omega one marine with garlic is like $9 for a big thing
And sfbb marine cuisine is like $4-5
