Hi there. I am no expert but I do do a lot of research on the fish I keep. I agree with ivonko's post, but this can be true of any fish. I vary the diet for all my fish. My veg tank is pretty much the same all the time. Bit all my other tanks are omnivorous. I feed flakes. and pellets at all feedings and treat to frozen blood worms or shelled and diced up shrimp. I give shelled frozen peas (you have to remove that skin on the pea or they wont eat it) 2-3 times a week. Peas prevent constipation and make their colors pop among other things. They also want really clean water. Give them cover as you would a loach (plentiful, plants, caves, rocks, tight/small). I am sure they will come around. Keep us posted...Hi Guys!
I was just wondering why my blue ram refuses to eat the flake food and spitting out the sinking pellets? Any advise? Thanks.
I find mine eat a lot of the left-overs. I often find them feeding at the bottom of the tank,and not as much at meal time as the other fish do. Possibly something to look for as well.
