new flame angel wont eat

got my flame angel yesterday
I'm pretty sure he's just getting used to new environment but he hasn't eaten a thing
tried nori,flake,mysiss,pellets,live brine,even pods,
he just seems not to be interested in any of it
I do have tons of macros in the tank which he seems to pick at a little but not much
I know he's a herbivore
ideas on how to get him eating
or will he just eat when he gets hungry
in all my years this is the first fish I can't get to eat anything

Mix in garlic extract with the food. Fish go crazy for that stuff!

Haha happens! I hope he eats and I wouldn't worry too much unless he doesn't eat in more than 3 or 4 days.

Where can I get garlic extract?

I had a problem with two of my fish not eating. They didn't make it. Thats the one thing I didn't try. I want to be prepared if it happens again.

Well I woke up this morning to a ear screeching scream
my wife found her flame angle dead on the rocks
it was her birthday present now I feel bad
all my parameters are fine
nitrite 0
nitrate 1.0
ammonia 0
ph 8.2
79*f
1.025
I tried everything I could to get him to eat but had no luck
was a beautiful colored fish never seen another flame angel with yellow markings on the tail fin like that he will be missed
now I'm going to have to see if I can find another with those markings

sorry bout your hippo tang how long did you have him
what are your water parameters , maybe I can help figure out what happen .
clowns are a quite bit more hardy than tangs hard to believe he didn't eat there little pigs most of the time , a lot of times stress will contribute to not eating
