View Full Version : Clownfish do not eat

Hello everyone and Shabbat Shalom.
For the past 3 days, the fish (2) in my tank have arrived immediately in the delivery of the acclimatization in my tank.
I tried artemia a day and dry food in the evening are not interested in food.
Even garlic drops did not really help.

I'm starting to worry and I do not want to lose them.

The seller says the fish came from nature.

Has it been 3 days since you got the fish? If so, give it some time as they are probably still stressed. Also, did you quarantine them first?

Yes, they have been with me for three days. (Purchased Monday night)
They are the first fish in the tank if that's what she meant ...

I know they're in stress but I'm afraid they do not want to eat and have a weak ... hope they do not die.

I'm assuming you brought them from your LFS. If so, call them and asked what were they feeding them and did you request to see them eat?

what are you feeding with?

if your LFS has access to frozen mixed food like LARS or ROD's food, buy a pack and try it on the clowns. Clownfish are not usually picky and they tend to nip at frozens immediately.

if you can't find them, you can buy some frozen scallops, snails, clams, conch, squid at your local Asian market and grind them down to mush.
