In the wild they consume phytoplankton, zooplankton, algae and other small particles.
You can feed Phytofeast, Oyster Feast, R.O.E. Cyclopeeze Rotifers (live and dead), bbs (live and dead), Cyclops, Calanus, Reef Roids. Basically anything small..

This right here. A good mix of very fine foods works great. I do have some nps that I have to feed specifically in a special way, but all others get their food from the small stuff I mix in the fishes food. This includes goni, clams, gorgs, etc. my carnation corals are the ones that get special treatment, as they are hard to keep in a mixed reef, unless this care is taken.
