    Hi guys,

    I know that this might be the most controversial and opinionated question one could ever ask but as a noob im looking for any info ???

    Here goes, what IN YOUR OPINION is a good food to feed your marine live stock ?

    I'm current only feeding my 2 sebae clowns on frozen food and sometimes ground fresh garlic and mix ?

    Your thoughts and opinions are most welcome to my thread ...

    There is research to prove that garlice fed long term can damage the liver of the fish, so it's best not to feed it, also frozen is high in nitrate so best to keep that for trats only.

    Ocean nutrition flake is very good, check the sponsors, i think Henk does it.

    @Weeman: Best you go and edit that first post. ;)

    Sammy my newly added Firefish currently eat frozen cyclops and crushed Omega One First flake and Marine flake. They are doing well and eating like pigs.
