Not EATING... EMERGENCY!!!!

Guys, my red-tail sharks aren't eating, i did like 3 weeks of research and i am feeding them Nutron Green vegetable diet?? should i change or not? (they were newly added 3 days ago). The good thing is that they eat some food that sinks. I keep them with Kiss. Gourami, guppies, bettas, gold fish and weather loaches

If they are eating some food, I wouldn't worry on that score; not all foods are readily eaten by all fish, especially upon first being moved into a new tank. A larger issue (or it will be) is having three in one tank. As noted in our profile of this fish, one should be on its own in a tank due to their aggressiveness as they mature. And they attain 5 inches and require a 4-foot tank. Please have a read of the profile info on this fish: Epalzeorhynchos bicolor. Clicking the shaded name takes you to the profile.

That's fine on the 55g, good move; having 3 sharks is still problematic though.

no goldfish can not be kept in tropical conditions. And those sharks once they mature will declare war on each other till you only have one left. Or at least one strong one and 2 really stressed out ones, which won't last long.
