I have traditionally had good luck with quality freeze dried food. Krill, shrimp, bloodworm. Its all too high protein to be a regular feed, but seems to get fish off their hunger strikes. They may also go after carnivore designed pellets, like Hikari Massivore. That is like candy to most fish. Again, not a good staple, but may induce feeding and get them used to better quality food.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

They went almost a week without food. They started eating frozen shrimp. They now eat a variety of foods. Big pigs now. From Pellets to frozen krill and even take fresh squid. They get pellets daily and every other day they get some type of fresh food. Squid/Shrimp/Herring.. Etc..
