His favorite thing is shrimp pellets...it really is the favorite for most of my dojo's....they also love bloodworms. Sometimes frozen brine shrimp is a treat too. My dojo's are my fav fish and I hate idea of losing this one.

What do you feed your dojo's?

Yeah, they are my favorite too. it's funny to see them swimming with the goldies, circling around them playfully. Mine have the same diet as yours; shrimp pellets, blood worms, brine shrimp, and deshelled peas.

My goldies and dojos share each others food. I sometimes see the dojos munching on goldfish flakes.

Okay, so I cooked up some peas and zucchini (pleco luvs his zucchini). I cut a thin slice for the dojo too. I cooked his part in epsom salt to see if that might do anything...who knows. I put some pea middles and zucchini in the main tank to see if the other dojo's would try the peas...and surprisingly at least one did. I have seen one kinda go crazy on the zucchini before, but I am not sure he knew what to do with it.

Anywho...I think the isolated dojo is just being picky...he wont even look at the banquet I put in there. I know if I dropped a shrimp pellet in he would jump on it in two seconds flat...but I am giving him an all vegi diet for the next few days and maybe he will taste it. Probably going to have to net all that food out later seeing as he is not sparing it a glance.

I will let you all know how it goes and will still check in for any new ideas.

Thanks,
Shannara~
