So we bought a Copperband Butterfly about 3 weeks ago. He's acting odd.
He's just living in the left hand back corner of the tank, and not moving from it. When he first moved in, he got majorly harassed by the powder blue tang, but that seems to have settled down now.
We pulled the whole rock structure apart, to create a new territory. We thought maybe he was frightened of the rocks because of the tangs. We left the rocks all pulled apart for a week, and have now recreated a new structure, but he seems reluctant to even turn around and look at it. He's still there, in his corner.
He's barely eating the food we put in the tank, but seems to be very happy to eat the pink soft coral. We didn't think they ate corals btw... We've put in nori (which the tangs eat of course), flakes, mysis shrimp and brine shrimp. We've soaked the shrimp in the garlic-y solution from LFS
He doesn't seem frightened now, just content in his little corner...
Is this normal? Should we be doing something else? Is he just staring at his own reflection?
I'm attaching pic of the tank, pic of the fish and pic of the coral.
Thanks again all, for your wonderful input and advise!
