    what kind of food do you have. Do you have any vinegar eels or microwoms?

    I would try finely crushing flakes and also hard boiled egg yolks and try and get a microworm culture from nearby as they are established quicker and easier to harvest then vinegar eels.

    Also you need to feed them about 3 times a day so you will have to do more water changes to keep your water clean.
