I'm not sure either. hehe

he just ate 2 bloodworms and thats' it. i don't think qt'ing him would work or be beneficial so I've kinda been letting it work itself out. I hope I'm doing the right thing.

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

It sounds like you're doing the right thing. How old is he? He could be hitting fish puberty lol.

he is still pretty small, I've had him for like 3 months. he is alot larger than when I got him though, he's maybe 3 inches.

You think it''s just a phase? maybe he will come out of it? I hate worrying about my fish but there always seems to be one I get concerned with.
LOL

Lol, well... It certainly doesn't sound like there's anything wrong with him physically (then again... What do I know? Lol) but it sounds like a phase to me. Just keep in mind... At least he IS eating.

Were the parameters off that you had to do that many water changes? Sorry if you already answered that, I've been busy this weekend and didn't go through all the missed threads :p I hope he starts eating soon!

Nah, the water was all 0 with 10 nitrates. I'm always trying to get to 0 in this tank its so hard with no skimmer and overfeeding like I do for the scooter. I was hoping the extra pwc would perk him up a bit but he's still not eating. I'll be trying again in a few hours. maybe do another 5g pwc just in case.

Me, I am not a big fan of PWC, I only do them when there is a need. I feel like I'm disrupting their sea life doing them.

Maybe you need to buy him some toys, maybe a beach ball or something :p
