| || | Spotted hawkfish not eating all of a sudden
Have tried getting much advice from local fish specialty stores but I still seek more info. 29g biocube set up about a month, tank parameters are perfect. Already have a healthy and eating royal gramma, 2 clowns, damsel and I recently added the hawkfish before I had added my clowns from my other SW tank. The hawkfish was healthy and doing GREAT, eating like a pig, (live feeder shrimp, frozen, and pellets) and active for about 5 days that I had him. Just the other day noticed he went into hiding and refuses to eat. Its been 4 days and he is getting pale and thin and still refusing to eat.
Have tried live, and target feeding, still nothing. I heard they can be somewhat like lion fish and all of a sudden stop eating but now hes not looking good. Has anyone else had a problem with hawkfish not eating? The water quality has not changed
