    What to feed

    I currently have a magnificent foxface and 2 clowns in my tank and was just wondering what people think would be the best thing to feed them. I fed them frozen mysis for a while and now feed them flakes a few times a day... Should I be feeding them a combination of foods or would just flakes suffice ?

    thanks,
    Nick.

    While some people always feed simply flakes..., I personally vary the diet I give my fishies. I think they need a variety to get everything they would need. How would you like eating Melba toast day in & day out all your life??!!!!!:blah:

    I like mysis shrimp, flake, brine shrimp (only mixed in a bit). They also eat whatever gets spit out from my refugium. I use spirulina flakes, and cyclop-eeze flake.

    The only thing two reef keepers will agree on, is what the third reef keeper is doing wrong!

    I feed my tomato clown chunks of meaty seafood every day. Go to you grocery store, head over to the seafood counter, and buy a half pound of seafood chowder mix. Freeze it rock solid. When you want to feed your clown, just hack off a small shaving with a sharp knife and thaw it in a glass of tank water or something.

    cool, I'm sure my clowns and the foxface would eat that since they eat pretty much anything else I put in the tank

    It's always a good idea to mix it up and keep it interesting for them -about twice a week I give 'em a treat of squid, shrimp, scallops mixed & diced to a paste.
    They go INSANE over it!:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:
