Right now I only have sinking morsels that I feed daily, and then everyother day or so I feed frozen mysis.

Your clowns are going to prefer a meatier food. I make blender mush from fresh seafood, nori, flakes etc...If you can get them eating something...then you should be able to ween them to flakes, if that's what you want to feed them.

Are flakes enough? My clown actually does not like the shrimp as much as the mosels, he will gobble them down, but nibbles and spits with the shrimp

If you vary the flakes, yes they will give enough nutrition for the fish. There was a good post by Steve-s about feeding flakes today, you should try and find it

I feed blender mush, flake food, frozen brine, and zooplankton on a rotating schedule.

the brine is more like once every few weeks and the flakes are less and less often used.

my blender mush is composed of several raw seafood items I got from varous stores along with some cut up nori and some saltwater. Blend into a liquid paste. Freeze in frezer bags.

Very cheap food that is also very natural.
