Is this weird?

I know that clowns will eat different foods, but my clown likes to eat some hair algae that is growing on the outlet from the fuge. Is this weird or normal? I've tried putting some green marine algae in there but it won't touch it, it loves flake and likes brine shrimp plus. We've tried our own mush, but the gelatin that we put in just makes the tank gross.

Is this normal or should I be feeding it something else besides flake and frozen foods.


Thanks!

Just a guess, but if it is at the outlet of the fuge...I imagine it is chock full o pods & good stuff for the clown.....the hair algae is just the wrapper

Ditto. I know a lot of recipes include it in the ingredients, but we make our own food, and have never added gelatin.

I think we got it from some site, I don't think we will add it next time, I wish he'd make it outside though, the whole house reeked for 2 days after he made it!
