    I have some wrasse they are extremely picky eaters unless they are just not pig eaters like my tang clownfish and chromis, thise fish devour everything i put in the tank but the wrasse just swim by and pick off a crumb or something very slowly while the others go crazy.

    is that normal or what are you guys feeding your wrasse?

    What kind of wrasse is it? There are some varieties that can be picky when first introduced but most will pretty quickly eat anything offered.

    A bit unusual in my limited experience. My wrasses (Cirrhilabrus, Halichoeres, Paracheilinus and Macropharyngodon) are voracious eaters. They steal food from the mouths of some of my slower eaters and even my purple tang sometimes.

    How long have they been in the tank? Do they appear healthy?
