View Full Version : Nipping tang

Anyone have any luck keeping a fish from nipping corals? I don't know what it is with Wellsophyllia, but my yellow tang keeps insisting that it is food. He leaves other brains alone, but I've had two Wellsos now that he's nipped. I can stop the behavior by feeding him nori, but the behavior begins again when he runs out. As I can't be home constantly restocking the nori supply, I'm open to suggestions.

Any way that you can teach a fish that a particular coral is not a food source?
