    I have a pair of occellaris clowns, they look healthy. I think my sailfin beats them to food, he is a fat bugger.

    I want the clowns to fatten up, any suggestions ?

    Currently feed them mysis or brine, ocean nutrition omega 1 flakes and ocean nutrition pellets.

    Feed twice a day, morning and evening. The sailfin doesn't go for the flakes that much.

    Can I feed them something else?

    Chopped up mussels and squid from the fishery store will fatten them up in no time, and a tenth of Ocean Nutrition food's price.

    Go smaller like lobster eggs, that way tinier particles ensure that they catch their food in the water stream and everyone gets to eat...:thumbup:
