Feeding a Royal Gramma

I just pickedup a beautiful Royal Gramma that I have in my QT tank. He is eating mysis shrimp like a pig. What else do you guys feed your Royal Gramma's?

Mainly shrimps and meaty foods they are mainly carnivores , some plant matter would be beneficial if you can but really 85% Meaty 10% Plant Matter and around 5% garlic and vitamins

I also feed mainly meaty foods. I usually feed a mixture of flakes, garlic soaked pellets and some frozen mysis. He gets a nice variety since my other fish prefer certain foods.

They eat almost everything you offer him, I give mine a mix of frozen formula 2, formula 2 pellets, dried krill, dried plankton and garlic.
