Start it on live- Get black worms and/or a couple spoon fulls of brine. That should get it going. I just went through the same thing with my blue throat trigger...It took him 3 days to eat live, and another two before he eats everything I throw at him.

Advice about my new Naso Tang...

Mysis shrimp or even better live brine will get him started. They are very shy sometimes and need good hiding spaces. A calm environment, proper swimming room, appropriate stocking and good feeding is all thats required. Tangs are a whole different game than most other fish. JMO.

Some good news. 2 days ago he started eating frozen food. I mixed Brine, mysis, krill and plankton and fed the tank. First feeding I saw him eat at least 4 without spitting them out. Fed the tank 2 hours later and at least 4 more. He's grazing like crazy, always pecking at the rock but I don't really have much algae in the tank so I don't think he's getting much nutrients that way. He ate frozen again yesterday but only small amounts, it's like he's shy. My tank only has 2 clowns, a square spot anthias and a leopard wrasse so he's in a very calm tank with LOTS of hiding spots. Hes out all the time tough until feeding, its like he's scared of the floating food...lol

Last night I pulled cheato out of the fuge and attached it to a rock. I saw him peck at that too.

I'm getting there, hopefully he hangs in there!!! He seems super happy though, swimming around being active. No signs of stress...

Get some nori. That's the main food source for my tang population.

Either way, he's eating and that's great news.

Yesterday was HUGE! He's now eating like a pig. Mysis, krill, brine and nori! What a relief, I've had such a hard time with my fish since setting up the 125 I don't know that I could bare to see another one go...lol

Advice about my new Naso Tang...

That's great. Don't know what other fish you had trouble with, just realize that the naso isn't a beginner fish. There are advanced aquarists that have trouble with them. They get big and are very active. Easier fish will result in less deaths and increases your confidence. JMO
