About a week ago I bought a small, about 2-3 inch long, Raccoon Butterflyfish from my LFS
. It had been there for about a month, and was eating well according to the staff. In fact, it was eating flake food while I was there.
Since I have placed the fish in my 55 gal
reef tank, it has done very well to pick things off of the reef to eat, and removed 90% of the aptasia anenomes that had COMPLETELY TAKEN OVER the tank. Only a few of the larger ones remain. My tank had become infested with aptasias, and I am really happy that they are gone now.
The Raccoon Butterfly is currently not eating any prepared food, just picking off of the reef. I have tried mysis shrimp, flake food, and nori flakes. It takes nothing (although my 2 percula clown fish love everything). What else should I try?
I am concerned that having eaten all the aptasias, the Raccoon will not get enough to eat.
Any help would be appreciated.
