supplements of phytoplankton and liquid organic foods should help. And you have to maintain you alkalinity and calcium levels for his hard calcium tube to grow

But is simple to do with just water changes, so I wouldn't worry about that considering we just want him to come out of his tube.

Mine goes in all the time, but at most stays in for an hour. It also hides if you try to target feed from too close. Look at the way the current is going over the coco worm and gently release the food from the turkey baster, or whatever you use, from several inches away. It'll get to it without scaring it.

Hopefully it will come out again and I can try that feeding technique. Is there a food/supplement you guys can recommend I buy? Thanks

I like marine snow. Just refridgerate it and feed maybe once or twice a week.
