Hi, Bianca. I just recently started my own saltwater tank about 2 months ago. I notice that my clowns hate flakes. I usually give them brine shrimp. They love it depending on the day of the week. I also give them some instant ocean marine blend which they love too. However, I switch it up when I notice they won't eat the food.

You can try melting some brine shrimp into a little saltwater, and soak some garlic with it..not sure if minced, crushed, etc...maybe someone will chime in with that info
