i have a blue gourami that won't eat AT ALL. i've had her 3 weeks, and she's eaten like.... three times. maybe 4. i've tried Blood Worms, Brine Shrimp, Veggies, Betta Pellets and Flakes (pond, betta and tropical). the only thing i've ever seen her eat was pond flakes and tropical flakes. she showed interst in the Betta Pellets and Frozen Veggies, but spit them out and refused to eat them. she did eat a few Brine Shrimp, but not enough. like 3 or four i think. her colors are getting pathetic and dull and the scales on her tummy are turning.... shinny? i dunno how to describe it, really. they are turning a yellowy shinny, instead of their normal whiteish color. she and her buddies were put into a fully cycled tank (tho before u ask, i dunno what the peramiters are, and i have no way check. but the tank has been up for 5 1/2 months and has had regual weekly 30% water changes and monthly filter maintence). all the other fish in the tank are fine and eating, but not the gourami. its sorta making me mad ^_^'> any ideas on what it could be??
