Clown not eating..

Hello, i got my 2 fales percula clownfish yesterday (july 21/04). I also have a hawaii yellow tang for about 1 week in my 65gal tank, baby size.

I tryed ::
Flake Food
Vaggie Flake

It may take a while for them to settle down and get hungry. I'd suggest some frozen brine to get them motivated, mine love them.

I've got the exact same problem with my green chromis...still haven't figured out how to get him to eat. If you find something that works, let me know.

Give them time. If a week to 10 days passes, then get concerned. Try a variety of dry, frozen and especially flake. Mine love the flake food.
Were they tank raised?
