frozen mystis and brineshrimp cubes.( I always disolve them in a coffiecup w/a verysmall amount of hot water...then dump it in the top of the tank)

My clowns "OCCASIONALLY" may nibble on the pellets as they fall past....and I've seen "OCCASSIONALLY" them pluck one or two off of the bottom.....but as a rule they ignore anything inna pellet form.

If you feed brine make sure it`s vitamin fortified. Just regular brine has no nutritional value.

What about the mystist nutritional? I got some of those today and they tore them apart.

I like to add selcon, garlic guard and zoe to my frozen food. I let it sit and soak for 20-30 mins.
