    Krill or Mysis will be more nutritional.

    My Anthias go wild for the frozen food, basically defrost mix with Cyclopeeze, Coral frenzy and Zoplan = feeding frenzy

    Did you manage to get your little fish eating? You need to sort this out as soon as possible as anthias need to be fed at least 3 times a day, small portions though.
