So I have three gobies altogether, 2 of which have stopped eating. The ONLY food they would eat was blood worms. I feed my fish a variety of flakes, brine srhimp, spirulina brine shrimp, mysis, blood worms and peas but they are brats and only touch the worms.

About a week ago Winston started to spit out his food a few times before eating it, then stopped altogether, followed by Winfield a few days later. I suspect it may have been because they ate my female guppies first batch of fry and got accustomed to live food but I can't be sure. The only one that is still eating is one I got after the fry were eaten. They just continually grab the food, then immediately spit it out over and over until all the food is gone or they get tired of it.

What am I to do? Their energy is already waning, I don't want them to die :(

Yeah, they are such picky eaters. From what I hear brine shrimp and blood worms are almost always a slam dunk for feeding gobies.

Add some current to the tank, they will be more likely to eat anything if it's moving. Mine eat flakes that I keep circulating around the tank with a powerhead and filter outlet that acts as one.
