    I got my blonde Naso 10 days ago and he just wont eat!
    He was eating at the LFS , I have tried "Brown,Green,Red " Nori with the veggie clip , tied to a rock etc..
    I have tried Mysis , super shrimp, fish eggs, garlic , brine shrimp , lobster eggs , Formula 1 & 2 pellets........

    He was eating at the LFS (Nori).

    He was picking off the rocks but not any more.

    Have not tried Flakes.

    Give it time. He has fed in captivity, unless the trip and acclimatisation was too stresfull (too slow) or the new environment is too stressfull, he will eventually eat.
    How long and how did you acclimatize?

    Apologies for the late replies guyrs!
    Just got back from Cape town.

    powder brown and naso are gone!
    got a new naso on Thursday I think they are a little tougher than powder browns and powder blues.

    giving it another go!

    How big is your tank? Naso and powders in a tank can lead to problems. Powders are very temperamental fish that can stress and die of disease.

    When i introduced my powder blue to my tank the naso actually looked after it as the yellow chased the powder. Was quite something to see when yellow started to chase the powder the naso will come flying at the yellow. After 3 days everything calmed down and now they all swim together.
