Blond haired naso tang won't eat
For the first week I had it, our blond haired naso tang would not eat anything at all. It looked alright in the store, but several days later it appeared emaciated and I could see each of its ribs.
I tried breaking up and giving it that red, sponge like angel formula, nori (seaweed), mysis, and live brine shrimp. It had no interest in any of it. I tried soaking the food in garlic extreme and that didn't help, either.
It finally started eating the tips off of this red, plant-like algae I'd bought (pictured below) and it appears to have gained some weight. It still appears to have no interest in the food it's supposed to eat, though. Any ideas? algae.jpg
