Have a Midas Blenny that has been loosing weight. I've noticed that he only eats the smallest of particals and when he does eat mysis doesn't seem to swallow then. Just holds in its mouth.

All other fish are great

Don't know what to do

Try Reef Nutrition R.O.E
It's small in size and all my fish go crazy for it.

you can try soaking your food in garlic, sometimes that works well as an attractant, or try other foods, flake, mysis, pellet.

Last night I feed him Daphnia and rotifers ate quite well
I'll continue with the smallest of foods as that food is to small said no fish ever

what is your progress with the fish? I want to get one but don't know if it's gonna be a difficult fish to feed

that is a beautiful fish. i had something similar to that a long time ago in shape but sky blue color. that fish never ate no matter what i tried. it got skinnier and finally died

The midas was eating like a champ I was feeding twice a day and all small foods red plankton, Daphnia and such
Sadly though he never made it. Alway having a full belly but still couldn't put on weight.
I am betting on a parasite of sorts
