I no longer have a coral beauty but mine used to eat frozen brineshrimp, cyclop-eeze, bloodworms and pick at the live rock all day long.

I feed mine homemade blender mush, various name brand pellets (i.e. Marineland, Kent, Formula 2, etc...), and occasional flakes.

Nori is also a good food to provide.

I have had problems too with feeding Nori in the past to my Coral Beauty. Just didn't care for it at all. I simply think, though, that it requires the fish to get used to it just like other foods. I think I will take FF's advice again and give it another try.

Why every angel I bought don't like to eat what I feed them, I got a bi-colour which died of hunger, and now this coral beauty, I just bought it today, it don't seeems to eat what I fed. I only tried blood worms and flakes now, but during at the LFS, I do request the owner to feed them before I buy, they do eat aggressively, the owner feed them live brine shrimp. But i don't want him to just eat the live brine shrimp, its troublesome for me to get them and its not nutrition enough. So what should I do now? Really have to feed live brine?

Steamers? Just kidding, but do you really put the shell in the tank?
