Help, clownfish food problem

I have instant ocean marine chips, omega one flakes with garlic and variety of frozen food.

I tried frozen brine shrimp today and omega one with garlic with no luck. Supposedly that is what they were feeding at LFS.

How long have you had him? If you've just got him it may take him some time to settle in before he eats. I have two clownfish and I didn't even try feeding them the first couple days.

In terms of food, mine responded very well to mysis, better nutrition wise over brine shrimp too.

I'd try something meaty like that, garlic might help, again, especially if you just got him.

Got the fish yesterday. So stressing a little. I'll wait it out knowing I have decent food.
