Brown Tang finally grazing....


After 3 weeks of settling in, Mister (or Missus) Tang has finally taken to grazing (Seaweed Selects Green) -- I was worried for a while as only pellets would be of any interest.

Just had to share the good news!

a little off topic...

What caught his interest in grazing? Did you cut down on his feedings where as he had no choice? I am curious because my yellow tang seems to always be waiting for the pellets even though I clip some nori inside the tank. I want him to start feeding off the vegetation I put in the tank.

I really didn't do anything. I recently purchased the tank (including livestock). I am thinking that maybe the fish just needed time to settle in to its new home and feel comfortable. Also, the move kicked up a lot of detritus which may have been an alternate food source.

Cutting down on your feeding may help (I have a hard time avoiding overfeeding my fish). How are you placing the nori in the tank (i'm using the suction cup clip)?
