still settling in, it takes rams a while to adapt to big changes, and it isn't that unusual for them to turn their noses up at food for a couple of days when they're just brought home. It sounds like he's settled in otherwise, though. Yay for that! Now we just have to convince him to eat! I'm glad you're at least getting him to eat a little bit of bloodworm, but it does sound like his appetite could be a bit better, if he's not actively eating. He is very thin. . . all my rams were thin when I got them from the shop, but C.Cat was super thin, one of the pictures above reminds me of that time in his life. He ate okay, though - just never gained. Here is a link to my sick ram thread
from back then, if you want to see the comparison between the three healthy (though thin) females, and poor sick little C.Cat. . .
I use NLS pellets - they're not the tiniest ones they make, but seem to be the perfect size for my rams at the 1mm size, and the loaches and tetra gobble them up, too. Even a juvie ram should be able to eat this size pellet without any issues, if he's interested.
Eat, Starrk, EAT!!! Lets get that lil' belly nice and rounded like it belongs!!!
He's a pretty little thing, for sure. *luffs* I like his name, too! >.<
