Yeah, not to upset you, but he is definitely dangerously thin! They are herbivores, an need more than one or two meals. Look up their main diet, and apply it. I believe and agree, that he is going to the surface for food! Btw, future reference: almost any herbivore will eat meats, but its not good for them. I have this problem with my Scopas Tang. He is an aggressive eater and will attack any food I put in their.

Once again, try to avoid the shrimp. He is a herbivore. Get some herbivore food. And yes, he will start packing on pounds. Don't feel bad. Just keep in mind, not discrediting your LFS, but LFS are not always right. That is why you should research from major saltwater sites.

I feed my fox shrimp. Mysis, brine, nls pellets, but the main staple to his diet is nori. They are not herbivores, they are omnivores.

You can also use plain old romaine lettuce on the clip too. They love it!

Lfs are full of all kinds of advice and everyone has there own opinion however we the people on a large group of active fish hobbyist on the net have IMO better and more experienced advice and we aren't out to make a buck but help other fish lovers
