    Good morning every one.


    My tank's sump broke and I had to bypass it.
    I had a hang on back skimmer that I used for that time period, in which my magnificent got stuck. Did manage to get him out without to much harm... He hasn't eaten for about a month now...

    I did quarantine him but it looks if I might loose him...

    Please assist ASAP.

    The best is to feed them tiny bits of hake, probably 1/2 by 1/2 centimeter once a week, at most twice a week. Remember they do not do well in new systems, they need as established system to have a chance.

    do not force the hake into the mouth either. they must want to eat
