Well Gus is not bloated and eats all 8 pellets quickly and easily. I might trim him back to 6 just to be on the safe side...
He does spit out bloodworms when he gets them on Sunday, but that's more like he's chewing them. He spits them out and then scarfs them back up. He does it several times before swallowing them. After 3, he's finished with them.
Also, had to change out my sinking pellets. I noticed at feeding time, the shrimp and snail didn't really want to eat. This started only 2 days after beginning feeding them with Wardley Shrimp Pellets. They were even trying to snag Gus' food! The Julii ate it just fine, but not all the inverts. Then, I discovered 2 dead shrimp. Temp, pH, and Amonia were all fine. I did some digging and found out that Wardley Shrimp Pellets contain Copper Sulfate which is bad for inverts. Some say that copper in that form is not deadly, but others blame it for the gradule deaths of their shrimp. I worry about Magic (snail). She's not as active as she was. (->)

Is a fishkeeper still a fishkeeper when they no longer have fish to keep?
