getting clown to eat..

Recommended Posts

Hey gang, picked up a new ocellaris clown at the meeting on saturday and he still has not eaten.

 

He is in QT with coopersafe and salinity of 1.020. I did a 40 min formalin dip yesterday to head off any brook.

 

I have tried reef frenzy, frozen mysis, and reef frenzy with garlic guard.

 

Any suggestions?

 

He doesn't look stressed, normal color, no sores, no panting.. just not interested in food.

Live blackworms. Family pet center (122nd & Halsey)used to carry them. I heard they're closing up shop though. Give em a call.

I was trying to think of live blackworms too.  Supposedly "the thing" to get fish to eat.

As said above live black worms... world of Wet Pets in Beaverton used to carry but I have not been there in some time. They also carry live brine shrimp. Mix the live in with frozen to get his attention.
