Re: Food problems

hi frode,
i was wondering, are your tastefull fish alone in a tank? Because i would
say that competition on food would make them eat whatever you give them. If
you add other apisto in the same tank that already eat worms or whatever
else it would i think encourage those juvenile to do the same.
If you want to keep them alone, what about kind of forcing them to eat by
starving them  a day or two? I don't know what you all think but at some
point animal have survival reflexes and won't let themself starved to death.
Another solution might be to progressively change the food by adding with
the BBS very small amount of another food sothat they get use to the smell,
the taste of it and seing it.
Here are my  2 cents.
Hope you'll find a solution
