Have you tried soaking in garlic? I have plenty of vita-chem if you want some. Not sure about live food...

You can try soaking it in a little sugar water. I've done that with some medicated foods and it helps.

I had a stubborn Goby a few months back that refused everything. Joe and Rachel suggested I try Krill. I had never used it before but the 1st time I put it in the tank he was all over it. I couldn't find any small so I bought the large and used a food processer and added some garlic X. Good luck

Just Realized I did this in beginner section meant to do this is general discussion lol Well anyway I've tried frozen krill as well guess tomorrow I'll get some Mysis shrimp and Plankton maybe some blood warms anyone have any suggestion on what else to try? I also started some brine shrimp eggs . found some live brine for sale on line 13.95 which is good price for like 12 spoon full but shipping was 35 and 8 for box so 53.00 bucks not such a good price after all lol. I have never never seen clowns not eat and these are tank raised I'm just baffled.

This is a long shot, but I put some coral frenzy in and my wyoming white went crazy picking out the larger chunks. He's normally a little picker than the frostbite.

I also have brine eggs in the fridge so you could have live brine in about 30 hours. Bottom door of the fridge, just dump some out of the can and go hatch them.

I thought I saw some in the bottom of the case at Seascape. Could be mistaken, and it was a few weeks ago.

So sorry to hear that Larry. It sucks when they die even though you do everything in your power to keep them alive.

You can try larrys reef frenzy, I'm not sure if anyone sells it locally since I'm new to the group. Also you could try and find reef stew
