Hi All,+1111111111111111 - yes, I’m VERY happy about this new fishy friend. Been waiting a long time to acquire one
The male Diamond Tail currently shares my 250-gallon with female flame wrasse, male rhomboid wrasse, and a subadult pair of C. africanus. So it’s Day 4 (72 hours since delivery), and during feeding today, I’ve witnessed it take a few bites of Hikari mysis but it then spat them out. Again, I’ve supplemented its food with Garlic Guard and Selcon. The other wrasses started eating within 24-48 hrs of being introduced into the Display Tank and even though the Diamond Tail’s added last, no one bothered it at all. The fact that it’s at least tasting food but spitting it out, is that still considered hopeful or a symptom of something unpleasant? Aside from it being a picky eater, it appears to be doing fine; in fact, it flashes anytime another wrasse gets too close.The white stuff was likely his mucus cocoon.
Being skittish for the first few days is normal.
NYA doesn't qt fish.
What other fish are in the tank?
A bit concerning; certainly not typical.during feeding today, I’ve witnessed it take a few bites of Hikari mysis but it then spat them out.
But I'd try not adding either of those and see if it makes a difference. Could well be just those flavors which are unnatural.Again, I’ve supplemented its food with Garlic Guard and Selcon.
Well, I’ve forgone with using garlic and Selcon for today’s feeding and it still spat them out. According to @NYAquatic , it’s been eating Hikari mysis without issues before. I don’t know what to do at this point.A bit concerning; certainly not typical.

Seems for what I have seen they like small food and slowly will adapt to other foods that are bigger and more different then the Wild.just hopped on the mysis train. It’s a start!
