Thats what i am thinking. I think he might have eaten some of the lettuce becase when i took it out it had some holes in it but it just couldve ripped. I am gong to try the live red seaweed IF i can find it. I hope he calms down soon, I'd hate to see him starve to death

Did you freeze the lettuce before you put it in the tank. This helps to wilt the lettuce and make it easier for the fisht to eat it.

Hey, did you ever get your PBT eating? I just got one 2 days ago, and he's a little slow at eating, too. I saw him grazing as soon as I put him in the tank, but I haven't seen him graze since. I figure I'll give him some time before I try to intervene.

Yes, ogo will grow in a tank situation, it does not grow as fast as caulepa (sp), and needs a tank that does not go over 80 degrees, caulepa is illegal in many ocean fronting states.
