    Never had to. Never lost one to starvation either.
    "Morituri nolumus morti" or
    We who are about to die DON'T WANT TO!"

    Pain is nature's way of saying "Don't do that!"

    "Carpe fermentum!"
    for those with no latin that means
    "Seize the beer!"

    i have lost some angels *pomacanthus genus* due to starvation.
    though i could not force feed them
    I caught you a delicious bass

    an iguana's tail can fall off, it's a defence mechanism!
    i read it in a magazine!

    you've just moved up a knotch in my book!
    your now at knotch number 1

    starving them would have worked better than forcefeeding, especially in that case

    What were you trying to feed them?

    Oh, marine angels. I wonder if they had been collected with cyanide solution.

    it's a hit or a miss
    u never know
    it's actually fairly common for a marine angel to never except food

    thanks for the input all.

    what would you think the downside of a force feed be? added stress perhaps?
