Hi

What proper food should I feed my Ocellaris clownfish?
I have ocean nutrition prime reef flakes but would not eat much, mostly spit it out immediately. I have frozen brine shrimps and he loves them but I would like to give him food alternatives like pellets. Does he eat hikarI marine s pellets?

Thanks

Hi,
My clown (percula) takes a wide variety of foods including:
NLS Thera + A 1mm
HikarI Marin S
NLS 2mm

Frozen:
Brine Shrimp (w/Spirulina)
HikarI Mysis Shrimp
HikarI Marine Angel
Mussels
Prawns
Red Plankton
Squid

They're fairly easy going with tastes, so just about anything you feed should be ok, but remember, variety is the spice of life

Many will recommend twice a day, but mine only gets fed at night (once a day).

When I feed him, he seems to always want more. Should I keep feeding him at that time or stop?

Fish always seem 'hungry', in the wild, fish are opportunistic feeders, and will eat everything they can when it presents.

As long as he's getting some food, that's enough. I would not feed more than he can consume in 1 minute.
