Put some Nori in again tonight, and he didnt go near it again!

Perhaps he really is getting enough from the algae in my tank?

I didn't realize you had an abundance of algae so perhaps it is getting enough. I'd keep offering it anyway just in case. Even if you don't offer it every day, them maybe over other day.

Cool, I'll do that.

He should want meat as well though shouldn't he?? Or is he content with just the algae?

I'm a little concerned about him, he's still not eaten anything including the Nori.

Will he really have enough to eat with just the algae in my tank??

I really don't know. Does he look thin? You said you are seeing it picking the rocks. Maybe it is eating pods as well as the algae.

Well, he's just died

Looked fine until now - he's been in a week, and in that time he's been merrily swimming about, picking at stuff, not a care in the world. But not eating of course.

Today was the first day he looked "off". Right from this morning, he wasn't picking at algae - just swimming all round the tank very strangely, spinning round, occasionally lying on the bottom then darting up etc.

All other fish are ok and levels are fine (just tested) so I can only assume it was a problem with the fish, or acclimation.

Are Fireball angels usually hardy? And do they usually eat frozen foods offered to them as well as just grazing the algae? Just wondering whether to get another one thats all, or if you think this fish isnt good for my tank.

Could be you just got a bad fish. But, I would be sure it's eating at the lfs before purchasing another. Have them feed them.
Sorry for your loss. Be comforted in that you did all you could for it. Sometimes it's out of our hands.

Thanks I think I'll try another one and ask to see it eat.

Would you wait a while before getting another fish, or will I be ok to get another one tomorrow?

That's up to you. I see no reason to wait if you are ready for another.
