    Difficult Naso

    I got a Naso 2 weeks ago, it took me 4 days for him to eat nori, but now all he wants to eat is nori. When i feed flakes he just looks around not understanding it's food while all other fish go crazy and eat the food. He sometimes puts a flake in this mouth just to spit it out. I tried not feeding nori for 2 days but he doesn't get it.

    it sometimes help to sink the flakes down in the water column.
    I feed my tangs mysis and nori every day into equal amounts.
    I didn't see a preference in either one so far.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    I always sink the flakes same with the mysis....He just won't eat them. Maybe i should starve him for 4-5 days of nori and he might decide to eat the rest.

    Give him time. I think he will eventually undertand that the other stuff is also food.

    Originally, my Naso would only eat NORI as well... This lasted about a month. I then started soaking his nori in with the water from thawing frozen food. This probably helped him develop a taste for the nori, since how he eats everything...

    Tangman, what about flakes? Or did he just start eating that on his own

    Johnny, have you tried changing his diet? Or did nothing else work. I just dont like the idea of feeding nori every day....gets messy.
