    Hey guys, just a quick update.
    Picked up a seaclone skimmer this weekend (which is working great)
    Bought two bar gobys on Saturday, although they kept jumping out of the tank (need to cut some plastic and cover up holes around skimmer/filter)
    so I took them back on monday and picked up two perc clowns which seem to be doing great. Although what should I be feeding them. I tried some frozed brineshirmp and basic flake. They seem interested but dosnt look like they like it much, any suggestions? Thanks

    Thanks again for everyone in the chat room that helped!

    Most clowns will eat anything from live to flake food. You could try some live brine to get them jump started. Your LF should have some.

    initially feed sparingly as your clowns will need time to adjust. upto three days not eating is not too bad, but try some live brine if not eating in 3 days. soak the brine in selcom before feeding.
