I caught some Haddock this past fall while deepsea fishing and I still have a few leftover pieces frozen (uncooked). Could this be fed to our yellow clown goby?

yes. Now that it is summer here in NZ I try to feed my fish as many 'natural' foods as possible as they are much better quality at this time of year.

You need to make sure that it is very very finely chopped as it is very hard for fish to tear apart

raw shrimp is fine. all i do is thaw it under cold water, rip off the shell, slash it into cubes, and stick it on the end of a acrylic feeding stick. anyone who grabs it gets it, and my cinnamon clown and ocellaris usually grab a large chunk
