Hi guys. I'm new here. I'm also new to the hobby as well, and I really enjoy it. It seems like a lot of you know your stuff, so I have a few questions. Hopefully, you guys can help.
Two days ago, I bought a Black Ghost Knife fish. I wasn't 100% sure what to feed it, so I picked up some freeze dried brine shrimp, because I think frozen food might be out of the question, due to the fact other people in the house might be grossed out about the fact there are frozen worms/shrimp in the freezer. :P
Anyway, I've been having trouble feeding him. I have a skull thing for him to hang out in, but when I try to put the freeze dried brine shrimp in, it either completely falls apart and makes a mess of the tank before I get it in the skull, or if I do succeed in getting it in, the ghost knife completely ignores it.
About twenty minutes ago, I noticed him going around the tank and grabbing a few floating pieces. There is a piece of food in the skull at the moment, but I don't notice him eating that, just the bits floating. I don't want to leave them floating about, I really don't want to mess the tank up and leave floating food everywhere.
Are there any ways for me to get this food to him aside from letting it float everywhere? I'll be open to other foods, aside from the frozen stuff, if I REALLY need to be.
Any help would be greatly appreciated :D
