Clownfish, in my experience, are pretty happy eaters and will take anything. But yes, brine when hes smaller and then move it up to mysis!

brine shrimp has very little nutritional value unless live or freshly hatched w/ egg sack still attached, mysis is much better, and other meaty foods, NLS pellets another good option

also be sure your alkalinity is between 7.9 and 9.0. It's a comfort index, sorta, and if it's good, that helps.
