Hi
Since coming back from the shop with a new fish, i have forgotten what this fish is called, also at feeding time i haven't seen it go for any food and now worried I'm not feeding it the right thing.
thank you in advance

Looks like a hawk fish. The one I had would only eat frozen. Never touched flake or pellet in the year or so I had it.

Don't understand what you mean about the goby. It should be safe for the hawk. Mine loved mysis and krill. Also pieces of raw prawn, mussels and cockles.

Na. That type of hawk is more likely to eat your snails and crabs. I had goby, blenny, mandarin etc in with mine and he never looked at them

I feed my tank quite heavily. Frozen twice a day and flake once. So I suppose the hawkfish got fed twice a day.
On the goby, my orange spot disappears for a could of days any time I add or change something in my tank.
