Feeding percula clowns?

What do you guys feed your clowns? I've tried flakes and pellets and there really not that anxious to eat it, they barely touch it

I feed mine mysis shrimp or brine shrimp, soaked in garlic ever other day. I used to feed them pellets, but since I got more fish and started feeding them the shrimp they won't really eat the pellets. They also occasionally eat the seaweed I put in there.

Yes they seem like finicky eaters, I got the omega with garlic and they ate more of that then the other stuff

Yes mine comes out and eats it right out of my hand. Mine is not hurting for a meal that is for sure. Are your tank raised or wild caught?

I wonder what they were raised with. My newest one was raised on pellets but actually prefers rod's food.
