This is my first aquarium, and the first time I have kept fish. I am looking forward to learning more and participating in this community.
I have a two day old 12 Gallon Nano Cube, the contents of which are:
1 x Red Wag Platy
1 x Balloon Belly Molly
1 x Cory Catfish
1 x Black Phantom Tetra
(there are also some pebbles, which I think were advertised as "organic or natural" and five small plastic plants.
I am feeding (on the advice of petsmart) approximately three flakes per fish daily.
When feeding flake food (Tetra Color Plus) the flakes float around to the surface skimmer teeth.
The fish seem completely uninterested in the flakes. When one or two of them do have a nibble the majority of the flake then floats through the surface skimmer teeth.
Today was feeding day two and so far the Balloon Belly Molly is the only fish that has really eaten anything.
What am I doing wrong, and what do you advise.
Thanks in advance,
