    Need a bid of info please Masa.
    I have two aquariums with the following fish..
    clowns
    yellow prawn gobby
    bi colour blennie
    scissor tail dartfish
    orchid dottyback
    McCoskers flasher wrasse
    Emporer angel (juvenile )
    powder blue tang(juvenile )

    I need to order some decent food for these guys since there really isn't a big selection in polokwane. Some tetra flakes and fong Kong frozen brine.
    It would have to be pellets and maybe flakes ?
    what brand and what size especially for the last two fish

    I'm currently feeding them tetra marine granules and all the fish except the tang loves it. I think the pellets is to small because it is marked as X's.

    You can try Ocean Nutrition's Formula Two Pellets and also from the same brand Brine Shrimp Plus Flakes. All my fish love them. Then also some frozen foos like sea food mix and brine shrimp.

    Ocena nutrition stuff is good. Your fish sould enjoy the prime reef flakes. Benefit of the flakes is that they can be broken up into pieces for your smaller fish
    Not sure if/how you can get frozen food, but im sure the angel will enjoy some angel formula
    While you at it might as well get some nori

    I will need one of the sponsers te courier it to me so frozen food is probably out of the question.
    I do have some frozen brine shrimp and marine mix that did get from a lfs but it's from an unknown make so I'm not sure how nutritional it is
    I took all the frozen food mixed it together added some freshly chopped oysters a bid of cod liver oil (thanks Paul B) and re frozen it.
    All the fish love it and I also give the tang some nor ri
    Ok so if I take formula one and two pellets and a nice flake food I will be good for a while.
    What size pellets must I take?
    what about the spirulina flakes?

    ocean nutrition have a feeding ring... check out aquarium world or any of the sponsors. This makes the food sink and not just float over the overflow.

    Get small pellets

    I've found that if I hold the flakes between two fingers under the water for a few seconds then let go in front of a pump, most of them stay under the water.
