What do you feed your SW fish?

I just got a 6 line wrasse, he is and will be the only fish in the tank (small tank). So far I've been feeding him frozen brine shrimp and New Life Spectrum community formula (from my FW tank) and both are eagerly eaten as well as whatever he can pick off the LR. I know the FW food is not ideal so I would like advice on what people's favorite brands of frozen, freeze-dried or flake/pellet food is for SW fish like wrasses.

I use a combo of frozen formula one and two, mixed with frozen brine and myisis (sp?), soaked in Garlic Guard and zoe.

I like non-gel based (they sink to the bottom and a lot of my fish won't eat off of the bottom). I use SF Bay frozen mysis and brine, soaked in garlic/zoe/selcon. I also alternate with flakes....formula1 or 2 not sure which....

I use mysis as my frozen food and cyclopeze wafers for the flake.

I feed my fish a lot of foods, too many to name.

The best for color IMHO, is ocean nutritions reef formula..it's great :P.

It is easy to get stuck on one type of fish food. keep in mind that variety is key. Just as important is adding dietary suppliments to the food. I alternte between frozen and flake myself. I feed Prime reef and OSO spirulina flakes and a mixture of frozen mysis, marine cusine and krill along with marine plankton from Liquid Life. After I thaw and rinse the cubes I let is soak in garlic extreme, Selcon and vita-chem. I also add DTs live plankton on occasion.

I thought the tangs should have seaweed available more often than this? I put it in at least every other day.
