Thank you so much! Yeah, it's so crazy to see! And they dart under so quickly too! Thanks for following along.

I have a question regarding my new Checkerboard Wrasse. So he has come out of the sand full time now (yay), and I just fed the tank. However, he seems generally disinterested in the frozen mysis I am feeding. Is it normal for them to take a while to warm up to the food, or should I try something else? Any suggestions? Thank you very much.

Is the mysis big? I would try brine first, it's generally smaller.

How big is the wrasse? Pretty much all of the Halichoeres wrasses will eat just about anything. Maybe what Carey suggested will work if the food is too large for the fish. Frozen cyclops has always worked for me. It also shares the resemblance with tigre pods. Garlic, like Kent extreme, entices many fish and is excellent for the immune system.

Thanks guys! Yes the Wrasse is indeed still fairly small, so I think I am going to pick some different food up tonight to try. And I'm hoping to find some garlic too!

Okay so I was able to get some pictures of my new little guy, though not great ones, lol. Please excuse the algae on the glass...I confess I leave some of it there for the copepods. I decided to get some frozen brine last night, and I think he may have eaten a little bit. It was a little hard to see because I was trying to stay away from the tank so he wouldn't get scared and go back into the tank. so here he is! Cool, huh?

It almost looks like he has a little belly...do you guys see it? Or is it just my imagination? I think he has been eating some copepods in the tank...is that something they usually do? I really hope that is a belly...I want to make sure the little guy isn't starving.

I am really enjoying my new little addition. So much fun to watch! Super active little guy.

Very nice Red! Yeah, wrasses will eat you out of house and home in regards to pods. Lol. They like to pick. I have some that eat worms hehe. just keep offering him the brine and when you get a good feeding response try mixing in other frozen food.

Thanks so much! I really love him. I'm so glad that they are into pods...they are a great safety net when a fish is not crazy about frozen just yet (though I think he is making progress).

Hey guys! It's time for a little update.

So, I have been on vacation this week and have had one of my best friend caring for the tank's inhabitants. She has informed me that everyone is doing well, including our new little Wrasse pal. I asked her specifically if he is eating and she'd yes! Apparently he has been out and eating. So it looks like I have nothing to worry about. And of course I never worry about the Bangaii Cardinals...they gobble food up for me all the time, and are always begging for more.
