    Well Dilly was itching to get out of the box...and I let him out. Now he's been behind the LR all day. Still hasn't eaten

    Sweet!! Now watch out to not over feed the tank. I'm still betting on ammonia poisoning.

    All food is going into the feeding jar. If anything the Nass snails will clean it up. I've suspended it on the back wall to keep the hermits/B worms out of it.
    I'm really not holding out to much hope for Dilly to survive though. He just doesn't eat like he should I've yet to EVER see him pecking at the LR or SB. I put food in the jar, he goes in and hangs out in there but touches nothing. Only time he eats is if I target feed him the blood worms.
    You would think being hungry he would eat-why would he allow himself to starve to death?
    I do know that I will never go through this again. I am not enjoying my tank

    This is my Tangaroa goby/Pistol shrimp burrow. The Tangaroa has been MIA for 4 days now. The Pistol peeks out every now and again when I drop some pellets in the hole. Dilly must know something's amiss because he's really hanging out around this area. Where once he wouldn't dare as the goby would attack!

    Strangest fish ever!! After having sat in the feeding jar for some 20+ minutes (hopefully eating) this is where Dilly has decided to park his butt. FIRST time ever seeing him perch anywhere on the LR. And wouldn't you know it's gotta be about 4" above the Maxi Mini's

    Here is his feeding jar. I'll be getting some fishing line today in place of the string, or else I'll glue the jar to a big ole mag float.

    Well it is now day 3 with the jar and Dilly touches nothing in it. Oh he goes in it all the time. But just hangs there, eating nothing. I've had to feed him via the turkey baster! Did I create this monster? A fish that won't eat any other way but by target feeding? Will he not get hungry enough to eat the food that's available to him? I've yet to see him striking at pods, anywhere in the tank. He hangs on the back wall like he's looking at something. But there's nothing there that I can see and trust me I'm looking!!!
    I no longer know what to do.......

    Well, knowing that he is an ORA fish he probably doesn't know what to do with the pods. He is the opposite of everything we normally get. I would feed him what he eats until he seems to be fat the gently cut back to no feedings.

    UGH!! This is so frustrating! He's so freaking skinny But so active and alert. I don't understand. I bought some PraziPro with hopes of treating him for anything internal but problem with this is, how the **** do I get it inside of him?
    I've treated the entire tank as directed.

    buy the MINI bloodworms, not the full size and he will eat them with ease. my little baby target loves the mini bloodworms as he doesnt ahve to work as hard to get them down as he does with the big ones
