bi-color not wanting to eat.

I have a Bi-color that won't eat. I've tried live brine, fish food pellets, frozen shrimps and I can't see him go after anything. It's been a week now and he looks happy and not stressed out I just can't see him eating anything.

I've been told to try some dried kelp or to add live rock and let him graze off that. Any one have any ideas?

I would try some dried seaweed and see how that does. Maybe rubberband it it to some rock.

Of all the dwart angels these are the hardest to get to eat. I think he is eating any pods and other small life forms on your liverock. They are also the lease hardy.

Try feeding Clycopeeze, that is what we use at the Aquarium for fish that are not eating and for finicky fishes!

These guys can be extra finicky. Do you have any available live foods? If not some PE or Hikari Mysis shrimp soaked in Garlic Guard or Selcon will do the trick a lot of times.
