Well, I've tried the Formula Two and I bought some frozen freshwater mysids and also some frozen "Brine shrimp plus". The naso took a couple of mysids, but spit most out, same with the Formula Two . He will go crazy for flake and nori though. Just doesn't seem like that would be enough to sustain him. Does seem to have lost a little weight since I first got him too. I'll keep trying!!

Wow, not even brine? I've never had a fish that wouldn't eat brine (but I stopped feeding that about a year ago, been doing this 6yrs now). I would say in the meantime to feed little amounts several times a day of the flake and keep nori there as constant as you can. I put some out 3X per day. He might gain it back, you never know, just keep tring. Let us know if he gets worse or you find something he likes. My prayers are with you .

I guess I was just a bit too nervous with my new naso. He is starting to eat other stuff now. Still seems to like flake and nori best, but I 've gotten him to take some Formula 2 and a little bit of the frozen freshwater mysids. Thanks to everyone for their help!!
