I have been searching my LFSs recently looking for a good looking Flame Angel to add to my tank. This search has been going on for about 2 months now and 2 days ago I finally found 1!!! It is a great looking specimen from the Christmas Islands which is where I've heard the better Flames come from. His coloration is beautiful and he has lots of energy and is very alert.
that I got him from had received him the same day that I purchased him. I figured it was better to get him right into my QT
then let him sit in those tanks and possibly get diseases or parasites that might be in their system. I acclimated him for just over 2 hours and released him.
I know it is only the second day, but he hasn't eaten anything yet. All I have tried is some frozen mysis soaked in Zoe and garlic as well as clipping some Nori to a clip in the tank. He has showed no interest in either but is very active and swimming in the tank.
So, my question is (i know, i'm getting to the point) how long should I wait before I get concerned and how often should I attempt to feed him? Typically I check to make sure the fish is eating in the LFS
before purchasing, so this is usually not an issue.
