Preferred food of young clownfish

I just picked up some young clownfish and was wondering what everyone prefers to feed them. I have a variety of fish food but thought I'd check here to see whatbthe community is feeding. Thanks

If they are just small (pre-mature) clownfish, I saw my friend used to grind normal fish food and feed them those smaller bits. But if they are still clownfish babies... then itís gonna be harder. You might need to get rotifers to feed them.

Hi,

Thank you. They are about 1/4" long. I bought cyclopods (super small) and brine shrimp (with spirilina) yesterday. They seem to be ok with the brine while the cyclopods gets them excited, but they don't necessarily eat it. We'll see how the next couple of days go. Thanks for your suggestions. Might grind up the 1mm pellets I have.
