I bought a wartskin angler last year (October) He was too small for my main 150 (lionfish, lol) so I had him in a 10 gallon until he got big enough. He was tiny, about 3/4." I started him on live brine shrimp, then small live gut loaded ghost shrimp, then selcon soaked frozen silverslides. He readily took the silverslides off of a feeding stick I made every 2 to 3 days. He had his lure going when I walked into the room.
He's about 2 1/2 inches now so I transferred him on Friday. I acclimated him for 90 minutes on a drip (and kept the temp constant). He seems pretty happy and swims around a lot. None of the other fish bother him. The problem is, he won't eat! I use the same stick with a silverslides and he blows it away and doesn't want it. I'm getting concerned because it's been nearly a week. Will he eat if he gets hungry enough? I'll just keep trying I guess. He seems healthy otherwise, no labored breathing and he's active.
