Mine is so fat it looks like he swallowed a marble. They are browsers. Mine doesn't touch the seaweed strips but eats anything else, plus he constantly is munching on algae he finds on the walls and rocks. He will probably develop a broad appetite, keep trying.

Mine eats pretty much anything but algae strips silly fish. He has eased up on the meatier foods finally. I feed mine an algae based food once a day, but like I said mine eats anything.
