I've never had a problem out of feeding damsel species flake and pellet food only. They seem to do fine on it. I've not seen damsels even acknowledge seweed, but they do like the occasional treat of frozen brine or mysis shrimp or live brine.

Along with a better quality flake food designed for marines, the foundation of your marine fish diet should be a quality frozen product, look to the lines from proven brands like LifeLine

All the foods listed are great for damsels. I've kept three damsels (all at different times) and only my Yellowtail Damsel took interest in seaweed. It really loves the stuff. It chases my Pyramid Butterfly away from it when my butterfly goes in for a taste.
