IME, variety and quality are the keys to a good diet. I feed every other day, roating between frozen and flake. I feed frozen mysis and marine cusisine, thawed and rinsed and soaked in garlic extrem, selcon and vita chem. I also add DT's, liquidlife marine and kent zoo-plex. For flake I use Ocean nutritian Prime Reef and OSI Spirulina. Nori every non-feeding day for the tangs.

I agree with Brian as Variety is the key. I feed mine flake,mysis , vitamin enriched brine and emerald entree. Eventually your other fish will move on over to flake if you feed a variety. Hope all goes well.
