Need advice for Picky Gourami
I have a Dwarf Flame Gourami in a 16 gallon with 4 Corys and 3 Endlers. When I first got him he was a complete hog. He'd eat his food, their food, any lil critters he could find (tank is planted and probably 2 years old). Then (I could smack myself) I let him try frozen bloodworms.
Now, not only does he NOT eat anything else, he'll only eat the most pristine, red, fat bloodworms I can find and all others he'll let float to the bottom. So my question is, should I fast him to get him back on pellets? He was eating a combo of Betta Pro and New World Spectrum (guppy food and sinking carnivore pellets too). I know we can let our bettas go for a week or two but I'm not sure about Gouramis. I'm a little fed up with Mango the Diva. I shouldn't have named him after Chris Kattan's character. That's what he's turned into.
