Good to know.

In a 40b tank I've got a 750 and 1500 gph power head in the tank... plus a hob. Is this too much?

Bart never leaves his cave. Nor does he eat. Any ideas?

How longs has it been? Any other fish in the tank? You can try and target feed or nest him and put him in one of those breeding nests. Try and feed him there.

Just a thought.

I know with freshwater in an established tank fish can go for some time without eating.... but with a new saltwater tank and a young fish I'm pretty concerned

I agree and does cause some reason for concern, I hope he pulls through and snaps out of it. Is he swimming around or still hiding?

I returned Bart. I'm not willing to have a fish die on me for lacking of eating.

That was a few days ago. I watched the lfs feed the clowns and got two others instead. They are eating well in my tank. I also have a damsel/chromis. Blue green.
