thats very funny i've got one feeder fish in my tank that just refuses to become a meal, he's survived two weeks of chasing so far.

and that would be the best benefit your fish get from that feeder:
exercise and agility

I dont know if im posting in the right thread but how do you possibly change your O's food choices? i usually feed my O a variety of live food (worms, shrimps, prawns, crickets, etc) I recently decided to try Hikari Gold pellets because everybody on this forum seems like feeding these are a great source of vitamins and such, but my O wont even touch it. Any ideas would be appreciated.

starve them for a couple of days and they will eat the pellets.
O's tend to get spoiled if they get live food too often, and it doesnt hurt to starve them for a little while until they accept what you give them... they'll be better off for it

I starved my 2 O's for about 2.5weeks but still spatted out the pellets. =( I guess i should just keep feeding live food.

lol thats just a mistake it will happen they will just get used to the live food

but i used to be like that go get every earthworm because it rains alot in the fall and i used to give them the live food and drop 1 or 2 pellets a day and just take your time until you get them to eat full pellets meals

I placed an order with Drs. Foster and Smith and they had a promo going on and I got a large container of Freeze Dried Krill as a free gift. How do you store these? Wasn't sure if they had to be kept cooler to stay fresh longer or can you just keep them on the shelf since they are freeze dried...just curious.
