    Sounds normal dude. Give it time and it will/may eventually take on everything your other fish eat :)

    Nice addition. All my fish take a duck when they see the net. Maybe he's not used to it yet.

    I bought a Regal tang on the weekend and he only just started eating frozen food last night:)

    If you dont mind me asking was he expensive?

    A Beautiful place!
    Be careful to defrost frozen food directly in the tank or add the juice of frozen food. It can fuel nuisance algae and cause water quality problems in the long run. It is best to thaw the food in cold RO water and then pour it through a sieve. Discard the RO/juice mix. You can now add the food to the tank.
