I introduced 5 Green Tiger Barbs into my Tank, and they were doing fine until I decided to give them some frozen Baby Peas. (I boiled and de-shelled them).
So, I fed my Green Tiger Barbs 3 Boiled Baby Peas shortly after introducing them to my tank (I have 5 juvenile Green Tiger Barbs currently).
I've taken the skins off and crushed them up roughly between my fingers before placing them in to the tank.
I do admit, now looking back in hindsight, 3 whole -Baby Peas- does seem abit excessive for 5 Juvenile Green Tiger Barbs, but in all honesty, naivety and total ignorance, I didn't think that they would actually eat it all in one go! Greedy little buggers (I should have known better).
- I wont be feeding them again till Saturday Night / Sunday Morning now. (It is currently Friday night here in England). - I wont be feeding them anywhere near that much ever again.
Now they seem to be swimming with their noses down (And have been doing so for some time now, 1-2 hours), could this just be a case of indigestion?
I was told peas are good for the fishes digestion tract, so I'm presuming this is just the fish having a little un-comfort before the peas 'do their work', since I doubt the shop ever fed them foods to help with digestion (Peas, speciality foods, etc). - Since they are newly brought fish too.
