do you only feed flaks and pellets? I feed frozen every day and use some garlic on the food. SOme maybe against it but I find it to work. I feed flakes occasionally.

Mix in the pellets and flakes with the frozen ....works for all my finicky eaters...some had success with not feeding for a few days, but I don’t recommend that method especially with tangs because they are very active and need daily nutrition to stay healthy....

Try turning on all of your powerheads when you feed, Then the food will blow around and It will look like its live. That worked for my cleaner wrasse.
