Naso Tang

I have a new Naso Tang. The problem is that all he will eat is frozen brine shrimp and frozen plankton. I've tried several veggy foods like formula 1 for tangs, freezedried seaweed and frozen seaweed, but he seems to ignore them. Obviously the carnivore diet is not normal. But is this a problem? If it is, how do I fix it? Thanks!

Since It's a new fish, it may need to get learn that the dried seaweed is food. Mine will eat a strip of Nori in under 30 seconds, everytime I feed it(3-4x daily).

I wouldn't worry about the brine shrimp though. I will also occasionally hold a shrimp tail between my fingers for it to pick the meat off of, after I feed the shrimp to my Lion. It loves it.

This is a fun fish that will soon learn to beg when you walk by.
