coris wrasse feeding?
 
Have had him 10 days.... he comes out only at 4:30 pm like clock work I have never seen him eat if anything. He will take a piece in and spit it out. Feed mix of mysis, brine and spirl.... Any one have any suggestions? Concerns. Lfs where I got him said he just isn't adjusted yet....

Sorry I never responded to this. Have you tried soaking the food in garlic beforehand?

No, just regular garlic? Havent seen him for a couple days either.

Kent sells a product called Garlic Xtreme.

What kind of tank is he in? Do you have a sandy bottom? They like to burrow and might not feel comfortable if he can't do that. Also, what size tank is this?

75g tank. Yes sand bottom

Boh, the garlic extreme is a great product but do some research on how often to use it. I do use it but only about 4-5 days a week because of something I read (sorry can't remember right now but it will spike something with daily use). Hope things work out for your wrasse.
