My maroon & gold clown will only eat flake food

I've tried to feed my clown mysis shrimp but she just spits it out. Flake food is no prob for her. Is this normal? Should I buy the garlic supp to marinated the mysis? What other food should I try? She's so pretty- don't want to lose her.

You might wanna try a smaller frozen food like enriched brine. My clowns eat everything pretty much. lol But they really like the brine, pellets and flake.

You can add some garlic supplement to the frozen food if you like, it won;t hurt and can only help in my opinion.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I would try pellets. They are the only food that ALL of my fish will eat, even my picky longnose hawkfish.
