African leaf fish (Leapord Ctempona) not eating
Hey everyone, I decided to get a new fish from the petsmart down the highway from me. I was originally going to get a black ghost knife fish, because they said there was one in the back that was very healthy, when I went in a few days ago. I didn't have the money to buy him then, and on my recent trip down there it had died. My alternative was what they had labeled an African Spotted Leaf fish, or Leopard Ctempona. I got 1, a little 1 incher, and took it home. He ignored flakes, so I got some ghost shrimp. The angelfish ate one and the barbs began harassing the shrimp, and the Ctempona was too shy to try to eat them. I removed the shrimp and Ctempona and put them in my 29 gallon tank. I am not sure if the Ctempona has eaten any shrimp; the larger shrimp wave their pincers at him whenever he gets too close, but I think he may have eaten the smaller shrimp. I don't know, ghost shrimp are hard to find on white gravel. Assuming by the Ctempona's behavior that he has not eaten any shrimp, what are my other options?
