I have never heard of a fish not being able to eat something because it was to small. Often my picky eater spit something out because they do not like it. Google search Belonesox Pike when you get a chance. That is what I have. I believe our fish our quit similar. I also add vitamins into my tanks that have picky eaters, may be a complete waist of money, I dont know.

you guys are clearly not comprehending my posts. Needle Fish have Long Narrow Jaws With Tiny Teeth. Its almost impossible for it to eat blood worms or Brine Shrimp because it cant gulp it in like the other fish.

and Aunt kymmie. Ill try to take a picture.

i dont think their is anything else these guys will eat, given their long slender bodies and beaks they are made to dart fast and hunt fish.
i know someone that made a feeder for a copperband ( saltwater fish ) that has a long slender beak as well. maybe you can do something similiar and train it to frozen brine or freeze dried bloodworms. ill PM you the link when i find it.

I figured it out. I Now Feed Him Blood Worms. it took alot of effort on both mine and his part.

Because they arent to big its hard for him to work it down his slender jaw so i Dip the Cup into the water and the worms stay at the bottom so when he swims into the cup he gets more in one bite increasing the amount of food that he eventually swallows. its pretty funny to watch cause i know it must be frustrating for him.
