What and how much you feed your Ocsillarus Clown pair depends on wether or not they are hosting an anenome. If they are then they need more food. Clowns are not picky eaters. Mysis shrimp and a combination of green flake works well. Just flake does not provide Clowns or any other fish for that matter the nutrition they need. Flakes bulk up a fish and they cannot absorb nutrients from flake food. The cyclpeeze is a good alternative but can be hard to come by. A light feeding twice a day and a vitamin supplement such as Garlic Elixir or Zoey is best added to their food. Clowns and especially Ocsillaris and especially especially tank raised Clowns are prone to parasites. So a vitamin supplement in my experience is necessary.
