The powder brown and sailfin tangs are the largest fish in the tank coming in at 5". The two larger regals are about 4" and the smaller one is about 3". One of the 4" is the most dominant. If it doesn't like it, the other two cannot go near it. I have not seen any sign of chasing or biting between the 3 regals. I also have a pair of Interrupta and they do not care for the regals and vice versa. I do have to watch the 5 yellow tangs though as they grow. They were bought from LA during the super sale and were 1"-2". Now they're more like 3"+.

My Sumatra Regal pair got along for well over a year. The most that happened were some occasional short chases.
But then, about 3 months ago, the chases got more vicious. And while I was gone on 2 week trip, less than a week after I left things got ugly and the tank sitter had to remove the smaller one.

After 20 years of wanting to keep these, after reading everthing i could find about these, including this thread, i finally got a pair.

One 9 cm fish is with short spines and a 11 cm fish with longer spines. Both were placed in a 400 l qt separated with eggcrate. With liverock and flowerpots. Mollies as tankmates to try to get them on dryfood.

They got a formaldehyde dip and were dewormed with flubenol.

The male took clams, oysters and masstick dry 'gel' food immediately.
The female now for 2 weeks still nothing.
I moved the eggcrate so i thought the female could learn from the male.

So far i tried:
Clams
Oysters
Squid
Shrimp
Krill
Mysis
Silversides
Fish and lobster eggs
Grindal and enchytrae
Night crawlers
Live ulva
Nori
Banana
Cucumber
5 types of ON flakes and pellets
Masstick

One nip from her on Masstick after i placed it in the exact spot as a sponge was on the LR. One nip on banana and cucumber.

So if by this weekend she does not eat i ll drive tonthe coast to get some sponges.

Any more ideas?


Thanks

I dewormed because this was hanging out of the female and she was flicking het ventrals and dorsal fin

I had a female redsea regal once that took almost 4 weeks and a juvenile Chrysurus that did take a month to get to eat. Both where fat when I received them, and ate well after. Mine love LRS, not sure if they would ship to Belgium? LRS does ship all over the world.

Ok so there is still hope.

I ll go and collect some halichondria apparently these have been used succesfully with Zanclus.

LRS seems good food, but i guess the shipping will cost a lot.

That's a great sign!! It needs to show some interest of feeding. Even pecking at rocks is a good sign.

She was always pecking at the rocks, but never took food.

Now she finally eats but only this gel food and artemia.





Just did an 80% waterchange.

Tomorrow second dose of flubenol.
