· Marine Addict: 75g Habit
the magnificent rabbitfish i got a month or so ago was very stressed when he arrived in my tank. same thing, breathing hard, defensive markings, not eating...i went to short light cycles for a week, stayed away from the tank, and dosed garlic extract before feeding to encourage his appetite. i already had plenty of hiding places so i didn't have that issue, but he was still stressed, they're very sensitive fish when it comes to being moved tank to tank. how big is your QT? they need lots of space (4' or more swimming length) and this could be contributing to his ongoing stress...
