Very cool fish. 

I could always loan you some Macro that likely has pods in it. You could stick it in there just to get her eating pods til she'll eat frozen. 

My Puffer took 5 days to eat frozen, but I didn't have to worry about it cause he found plenty of critters to nibble. 

Now he regularly casts longing looks toward the water surface, hoping I'll toss in some frozen Mysis.

Thanks but I FINALLY got her to eat tonight. She nibbled some garlic-soaked mysis. Her mouth is so small she has trouble with it but she definitely kept some down.

The filefish has eaten for three days in a row like a pig. Last night I even got her to come up to the feeding ring to eat - something that will be crucial for her to do when she’s in the DT with my clowns who are now aggressive eaters.

Getting a fish to eat can be a daunting task. Glad to read that it is happening for you and for the fish.

The new elegance coral ate a couple of pellets today, so that seems promising

Yes and I know that it’s related to Indonesian corals. This is an Aussie. They seem to be mostly unaffected. 

It seems to be acclimating well

Added the filefish to the DT yesterday. I was worried she’d be really shy but she acclimated quickly and ate from the feeding ring day 1. My clowns otoh were freaked out. They hid in a cave from her and wouldn’t approach the feeding ring when she was there. It’s so crazy because she’s the most docile fish ever.
