Clownfish not eating!!

I've had my clown since Sunday and he's so tiny and cute, but he won't eat. I have marine pellets and frozen mythesis (however you spell that) shrimp and he will take the food into his mouth but then just spit it out. I'm starting to get concerned considering he's not eating adequately. How do I fix this?? Please help!!!

Try smaller foods if he is tiny, I use lobster eggs but even marine flakes is worth a shot...

The pellets are micro pellets. I try some flakes and hopefully he'll take them! Is there a certain brand that stands out compared to others that I should look for?

You should add garlic. They will be all over it.
