 I  just  got  a  pair  of  clarkii  clownfishes  for  my  marine  tank  and  they  have  been  there  for  about  3  days  now  and  doing  good  and  are  properly  aclimated.
 I  have  been  trying  to  feed  them  raw  boiled  shrimp  pieces  and  marine  flakes.
 But  most  of  it  end  up  in  the  bottom  although  later  they  seem  to  eat  it  after  I  leave  from  their  sight  (seems  they  are  still  not  familliar  with  me   Chuckle  ).  
 
 I'd  like  to  know  what  you  people  feed  your  clowns  and  how  often.  currently  I'm  only  feeding  them  2  times  a  day.  
 
 Regards,
 Vishnu

 If  the  tank  params  are  good,  normally  clowns  are  the  first  to  pick  the  food.  The  probable  reasons  could  be:
 1.  Sick  fish
 2.  Getting  bullied  by  others
 3.  Tank  params  not  good(ammonia,  nitrite  high)
 4.  You  staring  at  them  a  lot  Smile  which  probably  looks  like  the  case.
 5.  Not  used  to  the  new  environment  and  so  gradually  adjusting....
 6.  Acclimation  not  done  properly.
 7.  salinity  different  from  what  they  are  used  to(wide  difference)
 
 They  would  probably  adjust  to  your  tank  in  a  weeks  time.
 
 Finally  clowns  find  it  difficult  to  bite  off  the  shrimps  from  the  big  chunk.  What  I  do  is  mash  them  up  in  a  mixer  along  with  brocolli,  spinach  and  garlic-  freeze  them  and  then  break  small  pieces  off  the  frozen  stuff  and  put  in  tank.  The  clowns  just  love  it.
 
 Pellets  are  normally  easily  taken  by  clowns.

 The  Tank  parameters  are  fine  with  Ammonia  and  Nitrite  both  at  0ppm  and  Nitrate  at  about  3ppm.  Acclimation  was  done  using  drip  method  and  there  wasn't  much  difference  in  the  water  parameters  from  the  LFS.  4  and  5  seem  to  be  the  possible  cases.
 
 Hope  they  adjust  soon  and  start  eating  well.  I  have  ordered  for  Ocean  nutrition  Formula  2  100gm  pellets.  It  would  really  be  difficult  to  feed  them  home  made  food  daily  as  I'm  off  to  work  most  of  the  time  from  home.
 
 
 Regards,
 Vishnu
