Glad he's eating more, I think thats a good sign. Just keep up what youre doing and you could be fine.

Here's what I have as far as the mandarin, the scooter makes a brief appearance LOL. It's only 1 minute long but it shows the mandarin hunting and eating mysis.

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

Wow carey you have such beautiful fish and they all look very healthy. With my scooter he doesn't seem to want to eat when the lights are off as when if fed him this morning when the lights were off he didn't eat but yesterday when I fed him when the lights were on he ate. Is this normal

Every fish is different. I would feed with the lights on then, whatever tactic you have to use to make sure he eats.

Beautiful fish, I see that yours likes to swim up. Mine rarely does and I think it's because of flow

Just keep at it, it won't happen after just a few days or a week in my experience. My mandy took a month or so and the scooter took a few weeks.

yeah just got to keep at it and then they will just get in the habit of it all the sudden and will go right after it. they just need to get hungry enough to fully except it maybe?

my little scooter is by far my favorite fish.
