    Thinking about getting a clown fish have two chromis and maybe a watchman what would be good food to feed them. Chromis have been in the tank for about 2 hours now tried to feed them frozen shrimp and they did not even go for it so the peppermint shrimp are happy now

    I would feed a variety of different frozen foods. Petco/petsmart are great places to get a bunch of different things. Also be careful not to over feed, that is very easy to do with only a couple of small fish.

    get several different kinds, except avoid brine shrimp, and then rotate through them.

    Brine shrimp is like cotton candy -- fish love it, but it's not healthy for everyday feedings. It's more of a treat.

    Don't worry about the chromis not eating. They're still adjusting.
