Hello Fishlore. I have some pictures to post when I get home tonight of my NEW TANKMATES!! I finally got some stock in the 56 column. I have 2 Odessa barbs (rescued from a friend), 2 blue zebra angels and a blue Acara. I have noticed the Acara (who just came home with me yesterday) picking food off the substrate and plants and catching the occasional pellet. The barbs eat once in a while as the flakes sink as well as the micro-pellets I have. They like to live in my large anubias plant, which catches A LOT of food before it can sink. My environment seems great for hiding and natural habitat, but not that great for feeding time... The angels ALWAYS spit out their food. I have tried frozen bloodworms/mysis/brine shrimp (nope!), micro pellets (nope!), Cobalt Aquatics premium flake food (nope!), and the only thing they even attempt to eat is the fluval bug bites I got the other day. A few times they have eaten one or two without spitting them out. They are at about 3 inches from tip of dorsal to bottom of anal fin, so I know they are large enough to eat the pellets. Is there any reason for why they are acting so picky? I am concerned they will end up starving. I will buy whatever food they would like, but I also want to avoid spending 80 dollars before they find their favorite! Has anyone else noticed their fish showing the same behavior? Everyone is getting along fine, but the angels just seem curious but wont actually take the food.
