naso tang

I just got a Naso tang for Valentines from my kids unfortuntally they didn't make sure he was eating. I have tried seaweed by ocean nutrition red brown and green, brine, myis shrimp, and garlic so far he isn't eating. He picks at the rocks and swims freely so I don't think he is stressed that much. No hidding. I am really concerned. I have had him 3 days. PLEASE HELP!

It's only been 3 days, I've had fish go over a week (I'd worry if approaching 2 weeks). Stop the rotation of food and stick to live brine shrimp to entice him to a single item it will recognize as a "feeding" along with clipping Nori to glass. Once it begins feeding regularly stick to Nori and foods with herbivorous nutrition. Herbivorous fish will still consume meaty items, but I wouldn't make it a primary.

Try putting him in a QT and giving him more attention. Try feeding him different things in the QT. Or he might just be getting use to your tank because that is how my Yellow Tang did I have had him for about a month now and he just started eating in front of me.

I agree with Innovator. 3 days is not much time. Just add new Nori every day (removing any leftovers).

BTW, I only feed my tank twice a week and have gone away for a week and left the tank unfed.

Most fish can easily go 10 days without eating. As yours is picking at the rock, it is eating. Just give it time to recognize the nori and all will be fine.

I also agree with Innovator. 3 days in not that long. He`ll start eating soon.
