Tetra Gel Foods

Has anyone ever used these?

Aquarium Fish Food: TetraNature Grazing Blocks Gel Food
Aquarium Fish Foods: TetraNature Gel Mix for Freshwater Fish

I have some new and timid fish who don't seem to recognize food (they hide behind the plants when I feed everyone else) and I want to make sure they're getting enough to eat without fouling up the water. I thought these might be good to try but I'm just a little iffy on the gel part.

What do you all think?

I wouldn't feed anything Tetra. New Life Spectrum fed exclusively is by far the best stuff on the market right now IME.

What are you currently feeding?

They are 4 congo tetras and 3 swordtails. I'm currently feeding a mixture of New Life Spectrum Small Fish pellets for the guppies and Hikari Sinking Carnivore pellets for the dojo loaches. The guppies and the loaches go crazy eating but these other fish just hide. :(

Why not try a flake for the ones not eating?

Do you think they will come up to the surface to eat it? So far, none of my fish eat flake. I keep getting weird fish.

Have you tried plain frozen?
Get a syringe and squirt frozen or that gel in their face, or anything. I don't know, none of my animals have ever been scared when I wave a toothbrush covered in food in their face. :s

Tried some frozen krill once. The guppies and the dojos went nuts but the others just hid. I might try again.

The dojo is fine on NLS exclusively, ditch the Hikari.

As long as you minimize stress they will eat. If they are still stressed out they will still refuse no matter what you offer.

I got 2 more congos today for a school of 6, hopefully that will be enough to bring up their confidence. I also hope to get some floating plants to subdue the ligbting.

No Hikari, got it. Thanks. :)
