Then I rinsed it in warm water and placed it in my tank for my CCS. Within the hour he climbed down from the tank...

    Hello, My emperor angelfish is not eating. I've went out and purchased some cheap zoanthids in hope he'll eat them. I suspect he's picking at the rocks but I have yet to see it, but I've seen him hover face in the rock like he'll pick at it. I've owned him for 4 days, and on the third day I saw...

    I've had this guy for about 8 months now and he's just freaking me out now. He won't eat. I've tried pellets, mysis shrimp, and pods. I've supplemented pods from the start of his entry as well. He looks super skinny in everything but his head. What can I try? ?
