yeah, feeding the babies just isnt sitting right with me and as 1077 said, its just not enough for him with all that he ...
Agreed. By offering many choices, the fish will soon recognize that what you are offering is food and then perhaps you can slip the pellets in. Maybe try mixing pellets with garlic.
I have plenty of guppies that I could feed my dempsey but I know once they are offered ,it will be increasingly more difficult to get him to try the pellets. I keep trying and he keeps refusing but I am hopeful. At least he is eating the other foods I mentioned.
