nassau tang

i have a nassau tang that has been in my tank for around 2-3 years. i just got back from vacation and it appears to be very thin with a sunken belly. he has been eating osi marine star pellets, but will not touch the seaweed selects that i placed in the tank. what can i feed him to get some weight put back on him the quickest?

Have you tried the dried Nori that is readily available at any oriental grocery store. I have a Naso and he goes to town on the stuff. He also eats everything else I put in the tank though. He can be a real pig

I my area we have a lfs that sells live marco algea, maybe you should look around. Also if you've added any new tank mates, she may have worms and there are special flakes for that.
