ANy suggestions on how to get my anthias to eat? I've had him for 5 days and he's been hiding the whole time. I dropped brime shrimp right by his face and he just watch it fall. Is there anything I can do? WHat is stressing him out?
hunger will drive them to eat what you want, when my friend gave me his purple tank it only ate mysis, and after a few days of not eating I fed it flakes (what I feed my other tang) and everythings cool now
Often the fish will have gill parasites. Who know what kind of tank the fish has been in since it was shipped. That can keep the fish from eating even if it is hungry. Recently I had an angel fish in the QT that would not eat more than one brine shrimp, then would only stare at them. I end up doing a FW dip, then started hypo. I think that helped move the gill parasite, it started eating the next day.
