I have 5 Bichirs in my grow up tank. 3 Sens, 1 Ornate and 1 Weeksii. The sens and weeksii eats fine but the ornate always take forever to find food even if its right beside it. Its not that he doesn't like it, its just that he's slow... Hikari Carnivore pellets btw. The 4 bichirs have been getting a nice rounded belly while the ornate is getting slimmer and slimmer and kind of looks like a worm now. I tried to target feed but that didn't work either and i end up overfeeding. Is there any advice you guys can give me?

you can soak your pellets in ginger extract. i think every fish love ginger and it also help to improve health.
if its looks like a worm now then you should move it to QT.
soaking your pellets in garlic extract may help in this problem. if the condition is worse then you should go for medication.

Tank size is 40gal. They will be moved to a large plastic storage container thats roughly at least 130+ gallon in the future. Some times when the ornate eats, his belly does get rounded like the rest of them, its just that he is always the slowest of the group so he doesnt get much food while the rest overeats. Should i separate him into another tank solely for the purpose of him being out-competitioned for food or is there a trick to doing this?
