little more info would help a lot, how long have you had him, what r his tank mates, and not to sound rude but why would you buy a fish if you didn't know what he ate?, I had a coral beauty for a few yrs and he ate formula 1 and 2, brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, mega marine, and algae strips

I just bought him yesterday and in my 30 g tank with a valentini puffer. I did research and it said he is a omnivore which eats everything. I bough5 angel formula for him and it doesn't seem like he is eating it. I drop half the cube in the tank and only the puffer pick at it. the angel just swim around and looks like he is taking in water. that is it.. I tried lectuce. doesn't work. how does he eat? does he suck it in? or bite it like other fishes?? I also tried brine shrimp, flakes and pellet food. thank you... please help me..

It's pretty common for Coral Beauties to refuse to eat for the first several days after moving to a new tank. No need to panic yet.
