yea i put some in each day so far but hes just slow. he active enough that he seems healthy but he's not aggressive enough to g eat.

...........Pinniatus are the most notoriously difficult batfish to keep, and i honestly don't have any first-hand experience with them, i'll have to ask around and see if I know anybody who has had any success with them. You might try some frozen mussel and see if he responds to it...........I'll let you know if i can find anything.

I also wanted to add that you should offer dried seaweed on a regular basis as well, preferably clipped to the side of the tank or rubber banded to a rock : )
