    Those are all great- but they will shut down your skimmer for a couple of hours. So I ususally only feed those once a day, and use the less oily foods for the other feedings. Like quality pellets, spirulina flake, and the other frozen foods- daphnia, brine, blood worms...

    Oh Jeez. Well, I guess I have to admit my fish do eat well. I have four butterflyfish in the new tank now and I'm having trouble keeping nori on the veggi clip. With all I feed them I can't believe that they still want to nibble but they're at it constantly.

    Here's a rundown on the foods I feed:

    raw scallops from grocery store - LOTS of fish eat this, you have to chop them very fine, easiest to do when partially frozen. I feed some of this with each meal (I feed 3 times a day).

    PE Mysis - about the best mysis there is, very high in protien ( however, this stuff you have to go a bit easy on, leftovers will pollute your tank and it will shut down your skimmer for a few hours, I just feed it once a day. Great stuff to get finicky fish eating.

    Hikari mysis - second best mysis, fish still love it but it doesn't pollute as much or shut down the skimmer.

    Mega Marine algae - awesome for fish that need veggies in their diet. I feed one cube a day.

    Mega Marine angel - great for angels or any fish that need sponge like butterflyfish. I put one in every meal for the new tank because I have a bunch of butterflyfish and an angel.

    Mega Marine tropical - a nice mix of some veggies and some meat. I feed one a day.

    Bloodworms - great stuff, mandarins love it. I feed it once a day.

    Sweetwater Zooplankton - awesome for fish with small mouths.

    Tim's mystery plankton - this is something new. Tim Tessier at SeaCare feeds it to his fish. It's a red frozen ocean plankton that comes in a pack with no wrapper. Our local store, Aqua Creations, is stocking it now. Seems to be near irristable to most fish.

    Brine Shrimp - I feed this, soaked in Selco, to my tubastreas in the evening but I thaw enough so that the fish get a little snack, they love it. Brine shrimp on it's own has almost no nutritional value, it's like junk food for fish. It's a bit better if you soak it in Selco though.

    Golden Pearls - awesome for feeding corals with small mouths.

    Cyclopeze - same, my fish don't eat it although I've heard others say their's do.

    Press on Spirulina tablets - I have a female black leopard wrasse that eats a whole one of these every morning.

    Nori - I buy it at a little Chineese grocery store. It's dried seaweed that comes in packs of 12 squares that I cut into 2" strips that you can fold up and put on a veggie clip. It's great stuff for fish that need veggies.

    Hope this helps.

    See- what did I tell ya! Heaven is being one of Susan's fish! :-)

    My fish all eat the cyclopeeze, but they are mostly small guys.

    Hey, Susan- is Tim's red plankton like my live copepods?
