    you will have to feed the copper bandad live brine shrimp and wean him over to frozen mysis.  your clown will like a verity of flake,  frozen, and pellets. change it up they are like people and don't want to eat the same stuff everyday

    Take a snail shell and stuff some mysis into the hole, then put the shell someplace that the copperband is always around. This will teach him to eat the mysis and soon he will be eating it out of the water column. They recommend putting the food into a tight hole like the snail shell because their small mouth is adapted to get into small places like this.

    You might want to try Reef Nutritions "Arcti Pods", I have yet to find a fish that won't eat those.
