Coral Beauty Not eating

any help on the coral beauty not eating. He is eating all the algae off the LR and around the tank, but cant get him to eat pellets or frozens. Do they take awhile to get to eat. I got him on Saturday. Any suggestions welcome.

Have you tried nori sheets? Mine always loved them. It may just take some time. Sadly, coral beauties, as far as I know, are still wild caught and some are still being caught with cyanide. I'd give him some time, offer some nori if you haven't and maybe soak the flake food in some garlic extract before feeding. Good luck.

How long did it take before he started eating? And did you add any supplements to get him to eat?

I have the same problem with the picking of the rocks and eating nothing else. I've tried flake, freeze dried brine shrimp, pellets, frozen mysis and bloodworms, and seaweed. No luck on any of them.
