So, I've had a yellow tang for about 3 weeks.
He's looked pretty healthy and has acted relatively normal. Not sure if hiding when lights are out is normal, but he does.
Today, he looks very, very skinny - pale and he is refusing food. He has never touched the flake food that my lfs
gave me to feed to him. So, I've been feeding purple Sea Veggies daily and he devours it. I've also been trying a few different flake foods, as I said. None have worked. For now, the only thing he touches is frozen brine. I know its not the best thing, but he has been eating the sea veggies everyday and goes NUTS for the brine.
Water params are PH
= 8.2, NO2
= 0, Ammo= 0, NO3
= 10 (this is my biweek for water change which will occur Friday - mixing now) sg
= 1.023. The sg
has fallen from 1.024 in about a week though. We just installed central air so the temp has stayed between 78 - 80. No big swings. No white spots. Has not been flashing. Any ideas?
The only thing I can think of is that he's not getting enough nutrition from the brine and the sea veggies but he's turned his nose up at everything else I've offered. Should I try something else? Would he go for something from my grocery store, you think?
