How Do I Know Rainbow Shark Is Eating?

I bought a rainbow shark last week and I have not seen it eating anything. I barely see him/her actually and when I do I only see him chasing other fish out of the castle which he/she thinks is a cave I guess. how do I make sure he/she is eating?

hmm that's weird..my lil guy comes out all the time..specially when its time to eat LOL hes right at the top waiting ..then cleans up the bottom stuff that falls...maybe give him a lil more time? or get some sinking food and place it beside his castle to see if he comes out to eat?

Hey Eve.

As far as I know they are very teritorial and it seems to me that he is pronouncing the throne of the castle. Like Shawnie said, just give him some time to get used to his surroundings. He'll be ok, don't stress!!

yes, i'm sure he is pronouncing the throne of the castle cuz he chases out any fish that goes in it. usually is just the tiger barbs that seem to like to bother him cuz they keep going in and running out lol.

Go to VIDEOS and post your video under freshwater videos, that should do the trick.

Cancel the download and try again, if that doesn't work, try one of the others.
