It doesn't always have to mean water parameters, or stress when fish don't eat! This goes for fresh and saltwater. There are fish in the hobby that even under prime conditions they're prone to being picky eaters.

True, but clowns aren't one of those fish. Op I wouldn't worry until it's been a couple weeks, a new tank and every thing that goes with it can be tough on fish. Also agree with trying some frozen

Thank you BigRed. I will wait for a week or so to see if my fish start taking flakes. BTW I am giving them marine flakes with garlic Omega1 brand). After that I wil ltry to add some chromis to see if that can prompt them to start eating. Will try frozen last since my lfs told me that these clowns are tank raised and used to flakes.

Thank you

There's no harm in trying the frozen food right away. I'm not a huge fan of flake food to begin with

Use of flakes is just to save cost. Frozen food is expensive and if I can avoid it, I will be able to put some money towards a decent lighting. I m looking to get some softies corals down the road.

So, why don't you make your own? You'll save even more money and it won't have any preservatives or anything in it.

Pm mr.x and ask him about his recipe. Gregcyote would be a good choice too if I remember correctly.
