    So I have been feeding my clownfish pellets the past couple of days with very little pinches of it. But my issue is most of the pellets are shooting past them and collecting on the bottom of my sand bed...

    I am wondering what the solution of this is. Turning off powerhead? They are such tiny pellets

    You can turn off the pumps when you feed. Also, try floating pellets if they're collecting on the sand bed.

    Thanks for the reply. I float them but I think they are designed to sink after a certain time

    Look into TDO chroma boost small pellets by reef nutrition. There excellent quality and they float for some time.

    Feed less at a time and presoak in a cup of water.
