 Welcome  to  the  forum,  Sachin.  Please  do  not  use  SMS  words,  we  appreciate  regular  english  Smile
 
 To  answer  your  question,  you  mentioned  NO3  in  the  tank  is  "normal"...  normal  NO3  in  a  reef  in  nature  is  zero  (or  very  close  to  it),  what,  exactly,  is  the  value  in  your  tank?  
 
 If  NO3  is  below  10  ppm,  wait  another  4-5  days.  If  the  fish  still  isn't  eating  move  it  back  to  the  quarantine  tank  and  see  if  it  starts  eating.  It  is  possible  one  of  the  other  fish  is  harassing  it,  even  though  you  may  not  have  seen  anything.

 Ok  this  is  wierd,  what  a  coincidence...
 
 Even  i  got  a  coral  beauty  around  5-6  days  back,  was  quarintined,  put  in  main  tank,  
 **5ftx18x18,  only  with  base  rocks,  diy  filter+undergravel,  with  one  saddle  back  clown,  setup  is  over  1.5  months  old,  no3>10,  temp-28-29,  ph-8.2,  kh-3-4dh.  And  yes,  with  good  water  current.
 
 Tried  feeding  LBS,  fresh  prawns,  marine  flakes/pellets,  Coriander!
 
 But  the  guy  is  not  eating  any  of  these  and  going  after  brown  diatoms!!
 What  should  i  do?  hehehe,  what  remains?
 Regards,
 amod.

 Hi  sachin,
             You  can  try  the  following:-
 1)  reduce  the  light  in  your  tank  (they  dont  like  very  bright  light),  you  can  slowly  increase  it  once  he  is  okay.
 2)  Do  a  partial  water  change.  Around  20  %  should  be  fine
 
 3)  Feed  them  lot  of  Veggie's  since  they  are  algae  eaters  in  nature.
 
 4)  you  need  to  provide  him  with  lot  of  nook  and  crannies,  i.e  lot  of  hiding  places  for  them  to  feel  secure.
 
 5)  move  him  back  to  the  quarentine  tank  if  all  the  above  does  not  work  or  if  he  is  noticeably  week.

 This  dwarf  is  not  a  beginner's  (with  dwarfs)  fish,  as  i  mentioned  in  some  thread  before.  Anyways,  since  you  have  already  got  it  and  good  LR  as  well,  just  keep  observing  if  it  is  pecking  the  rocks.  Coral  beauty  typically  chooses  its  favourite  rock  to  peck  and  returns  there  after  brief  swims.  If  you  see  this,  just  tie  a  very  small  piece  of  dead  prawn  on  that  rock.  That  could  induce  the  eating.
 
 Also  a  few  semi-adult  and  adult  dwarfs  lose  the  feeding  interests  after  being  transported.  Hence,  always  prefer  to  buy  them  as  juveniles.

 Right!  It  is  not  a  beginners  fish  and  even  the  flame  angle  is  a  bit  difficult  to  acclimatize  if  it  is  not  a  juvenile.

 Hi  everybody,
   As  per  my  experience  goes,  i  have  seen  dwarf  angels  stopping  to  eat  after  being  Introduced  into  display  tanks  which  already  has  an    establised  angel.  Somehow  the  older  guy  intimidates  the  newly  introduced  angels.  i  have  seen  this  happening  between  my  Bi-color  angel  and  Eible's  angel.  Sometime  changing  the  rock  work  or  separating  the  established  one  for  some  time  help's.  As  your  tank  has  aleady  an  emperor  angel  in  it,  might  be  some  hidden  warfare  is  going  between  them.  pls  check  that  out.

 well  the  light  does  not  matter  but  any  sudden  switch  on  and  switch  off  should  be  avoided  -  switch  on  the  room  lights  first  before  switching  on  the  tank  lights  and  switch  off  the  tank  lights  first  and  than  the  room  lights.
