feeding algae


Recommended Posts


hi u all..I hve been running a biocb 14 gl for about a year&half...

I hve got my tank well stocked with corals and live rock...

i hve 1 blk clown fish which is about 1 year old and a six lix line wrasse..

with a bsy wrk schedule i only feed my fishes once a day during morning..

i make sure that they r well fed and i hve got good cleanup crew aswell...

clown seems to be always hungry when i come home...

based on the fact that i hve got small tank and i dnt want to polute my water quality by feeding several times a day ..

any tips on feeding certain type of algae may be to my clown at night..

i was reading about reefs nutreition macro feast red algae.????

if thats a good idea for my clown for a dinner...

clowns are always hungry :D


I spot feed mine. I turn the pumps off and feed him some pellets between my Mon, Wed, Fri entire tank feedings. This keeps my clown happy and keeps my tank free of excess food.

Being opportunistic feeders they will always take food, that doesn't mean they are always starving. feeding once a day should be good enough.

The best food for clowns, in a situation like yours, is something that stays in the water column long enough for them to consume it, without it getting trapped and causing pollution.


With my clowns I try to vary the food as much as possible. One food mine really love is the Reef Nutrition Arctipods. I rinse these in a little tank water to remove the solution they come in, then just squirt a little into teh tank. The clowns- and other fish- all go crazy for it.


Flake works well, as does the smaller Spectrum TheraA pellets.
