    good flake or pellet may be better than frozen as there will be less phosphates etc included in the food. and you can better manage the amount of food. Some fish my be fussy to flakes or pellets

    I feed frozen mysis as it has more nutrition than frozen brine. Live brine is good if you have a fussy eater.

    Nori or sea veggies are doog for herbivours as you can take uneaten food out of the system.

    #1 Rule: Dont over feed

    I feed once a day some feed several depends on fish needs

    Since we are on the topic of foods, I might aswell ask a question regarding anenomes. What do you people feed your anemones? mines been full of shiz these past 2 weeks, not seeming very interested in eating, although it is healthy showing no signs of any discomfort. Any alternatives i can try?
