2 shell dwellers are very picky eaters. omega 1 cichlid food gets turned down, flakes...no way, they did eat frozen blood worms but that can't be a steady diet. what to try? I have white sand, and can see the fish waste all over. but since I'm still in cycle I can't vacuum it out. right, because I can't add the water back into the tank with prime. I used tss+ and some rocks from my bigger tank, so testing is out of the question till 2 weeks is up. I feel I jumped the gun on this tank and now I'm trying to play catch up but can't because of the cycling.
