New Six Line Wrasse

I just acclimated my new 6line wrasse into my tank. Currently, my tank now has a pair of ocellaris clowns and the new 6line wrasse. When it's feeding time, my pair of clowns will eat everything before the 6line wrasse gets to look at the food. Is there anyway to get the new fish to start eating?

Having pleanty of live rock is a must as this fish grazes all day.

I always see my 6line wrasse pecking at the live rocks. I think its eating throughout the day already.

Sixline wrasses are usually very quick eaters so once it gets more used to the tank it should be more aggressive at eating. What do you feed them?

Try target feeding with a turkey baster until it gets more comfortable

The six line wrasse has been getting better I would dump a pinch of food into the tank and now my pair of clowns and the sixline wrasse will go straight up eating the pellets before even touching the ground.
