What is the best diet for ocellaris or any clownfish?

My plan is alternating between:

Ultra Marine Clownfish Pellets

PE Frozen Mysis

I don't know much about the clownfish pellets, but they look like they'd be good for clownfish? Otherwise I was thinking of just getting Ocean Nutrition Prime Reef Flakes.

I've been feeding my clown pair ocean nutrition formula one small pellets only for like 7 years now, and they spawn every summer, all summer long like clockwork. I think I posted a video of the first spawn in this thread many years ago. I just switched to ocean nutrition reef flakes (the eheim feeder I got doesn't dispense pellet food very well) and the clowns like it as well. I've tried a lot of different foods, live, frozen and dried, and they will eat anything. In the end, I just wanted to keep it simple and the ocean nutrition products seem to work fine. I'm sure other food will also work fine so food you listed should be fine.

I've tried many frozen and dry foods of different brands. Also tried different formulas within multiple brands. My clowns seem to like NLS Thera A Small Fish formula the most. It's the one they eat with the most enthusiasm. Their second favorite is LRS Reef Frenzy.
