Naso Tang won't eat


I bought a Beautiful Naso Tang it's been a week 1/2 now, everyday I feed the other fish, purple tang,sopas tang, Foxface, striped Puffer, and I have still not noticed him eating, he still looks healthy, but when I put in the food he swims right by it letting the other eat and he won't even attempt to eat it, I have tried Mysis, frozen bllod worms, brine flakes soaked in garlic, I put in Nori on a clip, frozen brine shrimp, but still nothing, what can I try next? he is also swimming with the others normally as well

hey i had the same problem with my naso i got about 1.5 months ago. He would not eat the nori he would just swim past it and not touch it. So i started soaking it in Kents garlic extract with in 2 days he ate it. now when i am putting it in the clip hes already nipping it out of my hand before i get it in the clip. It took mine about 7-8 days before he ate anything. how big is your mine was about 5-6 inches long and i got him for $35 nice and FAT too

soaked some Nori in Garlic last night, he is smelling it but no bites yet, I will try soaking everything until I get him to start eating, he seems to prefer nibbling on the algae rocks to food, go figure

Mine naso(3-4inch) is having the same problem, he swims fine and picks the rocks, he'll grab a couple pieces of mysis, but only 2-3. I cut up nori and rubberbanded it to a rock to look natural, but he doesn't touch. i tried garlic, mysis, flacks, krill, but no (munching) yet. I am at a lost.

My blonde naso was picky when I first got him. For about 2 weeks he would only eat green dry algae. After those 2 weeks though he turned into jaws and ate everything in sight

Try Macroalgae, it will help and try to make it sway with a Powerhead. It then gives it a natural appearance as it would in the Ocean!

Good luck with him, they are amazing fish!
