So I have a 75 gallon with 2 snowflake clowns (2" big), 1 flame angle (3" big), blue hippo (2" big), and a purple dottyback (3" big). How much frozen mysis shrimp should I be feeding them and how often?. I have been cutting the frozen cubes into 1/3 and feeding 1/3 a cube once per day, roaring every other day with some cyclopeeze. Is this good enough or To much? Thanks

IMO, 2 or 3 times a day is better... Give them as much as they can consume in a few minutes. If you watch your fish, they are constantly 'hunting' for food, so once a day does not seem right, to me.

Fish nibble and pick all day in the ocean. they are opportunistic feeders. You want to mimic their natural environment as often as possible. I suggest feeding small portions, 2-3 times a day. Feed no more than they will eat in 3 minutes. If you see food floating around after 3 mins you may have fed too much.

I'd also soak that mysis in vitamins. Mysis has very little nutrition. It adds fat, but that's about it.

If I soak the food in seachem garlic should I strain it before putting it into the tank or just drop the soaked food straight in ?
