Clownfish not eating

Hello guys, I got a pair of maroon clownfish a few days ago, one of them is 3 inch... I tried to feed it pellet and it's not eating. They only eat frozen bloodworms and I know that they can not get all the nutrition they need from bloodworm. Is there anyway to make it accept pellet too? And what brand do you recommend and how big do the pellet need to be?

Try a variety of things, my clowns eat anything even flakes. Mysis shrimp, brine shrimp and bloodworms there is plenty to choose from just mix it up...

What are the parameters in your tank? When a fish stops eating it can be a sign of stress or even disease. Knowing more about your setup, how long you've had the fish, and how he was acclimated can greater guide us in assisting you.
