New frostbite clowns won’t hardly eat anything. Had them 5 days. Tank has been running 8 years, biocube 32 led. Tried mysis, brine shrimp, pellets, flakes. Any other ideas? pH-8.0, ammonia-0, nitrate-5ppm, nitrite-0. They will eat but not with any gusto. They just pick and spit it out. They’re healthy though and must be eating pods or something because they seem to be doing fine. Tank has tons of corals and cuc. No other fish. Would SF Bays marine red mix be any better than what I’ve tried? I forget the name of it. Latest video is from yesterday. I’m away from home till tomorrow morning. They were fine when I left around 10am. Had the zoomies. Thinking of trying the two foods attached. They try to eat pellets but spit them out FYI. 95C1E5C8-20B5-479F-B8B7-BE60759E091D.png 366537CB-F93B-4D3D-864A-6B52357B2A66.png

I got about 7 fish all at one time... 2 designer clowns, a couple different damsels, and 3 green chromis, and 1 fir fish. none of my fish ate flakes or spectrum pellets or anything. I got the TDO chroma boost, and they literally inhale them. now they also eat Larry’s reef Nano frozen food as a treat. I have a massive CUC so I feed well..

edit: I have a biocube 32

my small clown and firefish eat almost anything i throw in the tank... but they will occasionally spit out marine cuisine.. i believe there's a lot of shell pieces in it. they eat LRS nano frenzy and NLS with almost no issues at all.
