Orchid Dottyback eating enough ??

I'm not sure in my orchid Dottyback is eating enough? How can I tell? I feed frozen mysis shrimp and formula two flakes once a day.

I break off a piece of frozen mysis shrimp into a small cup, put some tank water in to melt the shrimp, stir it up and pour it into the tank. But before I do that, I put some Nori seaweed in for the tang to devoir first.

My yellow tang I think intimidates the dottyback so he goes back into the rocks so I'm not sure if he's getting enough to eat.

Any ideas?

Try to keep the tang distracted with its own food long enough for the dottyback to get some of its own. Try to feed them at separate ends of your tank to give them space in between. I have had similar issues in the past with my dottyback, but it finally decided to stand up for itself. LOL.
