    Yes, I use Ocean Nutrition formula 2 marine pellets for herbivores/omnivores. I feed a bit every morning and the fish loves it, even my surge wrasse eats it.

    hi Tobes is it better than flakes and do the buttom dwelling.fish
    get any pellets; do phos and nitrates increase more with flakes or pellets
    or is it the same

    Well, if the fish miss some of them the hermits and other inverts like shrimps will pick it up. In the evening I feed Ocean Nutrition Brine shrimp plus flakes. The fish loves it. If you don't overfeed and your filtration is adequate for your system, then there shouldn't be any problems with phos or nitrates. I don't think the one is more than the other as both says "low phosphorous" on the tub.

    I have to agree, with Tobes... I feed both the pellets and flakes, i like to give the fish a variety of foods, morning pellets, evenings flakes and veg clip nori seaweed, every 2nd day frozen brine...
    Can't go wrong either way:thumbup:
