    Hi guys, I have two baby clown fish and a baby hippo Tang in my tank and was wondering how often should i feed them, to ensure that they stay healthy and grow to their expected sizes

    I assume your tank is still very new. If you feed them twice a day they will do good. Just be carefull not to over feed them as your cycle could get a spike. A good idea is to get a spicific place in the tank to put the food in(ex in front left corner of tank). That way they will quickly learn where the food is put in.

    O, welcome...

    congrats on your first fish, always exciting to have em swimming away in there. It sounds like you are new to all this (sory its just the way you came across) so could you maybe give us some dimensions on the tank and what else you have in there?

    You can feed them twice a day, but small amounts as they are little themselves and you dont want to over feed. Feed them flakes for marine fish and perhaps some nori (stuff you eat with sushi, easy to get at pick n pay etc) as a vegetation based diet for the hippo tang :)

    Did you read the link in my signature on starting a marine tank? If not, do yourself a favour - a short but great read ;)
