I saw this little guy (baby naso about 2 inches or so) in the Sumner Fish store last week.
He was eating a piece of mysis shrimp. I noticed he was VERY skinny..
So yesterday I went back and he was still alive and still eating..
The people there said he wont eat anything but mysis.
SO I had to have this little guy..
I want to try and save him..
The funny thing about this little guy..
I drip acclimated him for a while and dropped him in the tank.. I am not kidding in about 60 seconds I put a little food in the tank and he came right out and started eating little pieces of frozen food.
I was shocked. he was boss hoggin' his way around the tank the rest of the night..
No stressed, not afraid. just crizin' around..
I did try some tiny particles or nori and he took right to them.(they had to be like 1/8 shavings)
And this morning he was out and about..
So what I plan to do is feed small amounts three times a day (normaly I feed my tanks once a day) in the smaller tank till he gets beefed up..
I got some pics for you..
I put the one with the chalk bass in there so you can see how small he really is..
The front shot for how skinny he is
you can see in the pic without flash he has a tiny twist of chato in the corner of his mouth. he had that thing for like an hour
AND the Big naso in the other tank was swimming in the corner and this little guy was nearly mimicking his every move. funny stuff.
