Gbta help

Hey guys I bought a gbta online 3 days ago and it got here late because of a missed flight so when it got to me it didn't look too hot. But right now it's kinda under a rock and not really open of bubbled up. I tried to feed it half a silverside yesterday and it didn't want it and it didn't even really react to it. But my question is, because of where it is it isn't getting much light and I'm worried if its not getting much light or eating it will die. Any help? Thanks guys

You could try to move it put in the open but it may just go back on it's own. Typically they go where they need to be to be happy. I would give it another day or so and see where you are at.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

It's not uncommon for bubble tip meme to refuse to bubble up. Some will and some won't.

It is still in the process of adjusting to the new tank. It gets its food from light also. Others do not feed it at all. A little patient and it will find a good spot in your tank. Once it settles to a location that is good enough, avoid any changes on flow, temperature or lighting.

Alright thank you I do think its healthy because its foot was fine and its mouth is tighty shut and it has pretty good color so I'm hoping for the best

You don't need to feed them. They get all the energy they need from your light, if it is strong enough. What is your lighting source?

Update on the nem I just got a small clown I'm hopes it will host but so far it's not gone near it which isn't what in worried about right now. What I'm worried about is that the nem is pretty shriveled and the foots is kinda peeling off the rock, so maybe it's moving???
