I used freeze-dried krill one Monday Wednesday and Friday. One piece only.

You should look up more info on them. I'm thinking live fish isn't good since the kind of live fihs you can get for them isn't something normally found in a reef. Krill or other meaty foods. Google fish food blender mush. Don't rely on the live food.

Freeze dried is prolly one of the best ways. Like I said I used krill and he did fine. Just make sure the piece isn't to big.

They will eat pellets. Second best option is large frozen foods like mussells and shrimp. I wouldn't do freeze-dried, frozen is more nutritious. You can even use stuff from the seafood section at the grocery store. The problem with any whole food like that (live, freeze-dried, or frozen) is that it is not a complete and balanced diet. Try to get them on pellets, keep trying if they don't take to it right away.
