    A few month old firefish for the past week has been eating less and less. I thought it was getting out competed so I caught it from the 180 and moved it to my 28 gallon which is a lot calmer, but hes still not eating very much. He eats a little bit but spits up a lot. any thoughts on how to get him to eat?

    What have you tried feeding it?

    Brine isn't nutritious

    Switch food. Try a small pellet like TDO or Hakari which is popular now. If you're near me I can give you half a dozen different things to try. Also grab a bottle of Reef Nutriotion roe. All small fish love them.
