I bought a Splendid Leopard Wrasse six days ago. I've heard of wrasses burying in the sand for days when you first put them in your tank, but this little guy was out and about swimming around the next morning. He looks healthy (coloring is good), but he won't eat anything I give him...\r\n\r\nAt the fish store, I had the guy there feed him before I bought him. The man fed him floating pellets, and he ate just fine. I haven't tried floating pellets (because I don't have any), but I have been feeding Omega One freeze dried mysis shrimp and Omega One freeze dried brine shrimp. The wrasse ignores the food completely! The shrimp drift right by his face, and he doesn't even care! I did try a marine sinking pellet food one of the days as well; the wrasse picked at it a little, and then left it alone.\r\n\r\nHe swims around the tank all day picking at the live rock, and acts like he's eating stuff on the live rock (I don't see anything). I would think that he's eating pods on the LR, but my tank has only been set-up for 2 months, and that doesn't seem like enough time for the pod population alone to support a wrasse (I don't see any pods on the LR). \r\n\r\nI'm planning on running to a local pet store tomorrow to see if they have any floating pellets...\r\n\r\nAny suggestions? Do you think he is really eating enough microscopic stuff on the LR that he is full? Any diet recommendations? Any help would be great.
