Yes, I think that the reason they are most often "wet pets" is that they are such characters! I don't know why I didn't think of a fork
, thanks! I had tried quartering the cube with a knife, and ended up with these chopped up tiny pieces which went all over the tank. Not good, wasted live/frozen food will foul a tank in no time. A fork won't chop :).
BTW, Mr. Double Tail took a couple of Omega 1 Betta Buffet pellets this morning. Being hungry changes the attitude, lol. Turned his nose up at the NLS Thera+A, yet, but progess! He got a couple of worms for dessert.
Mr Fire Dragon ate 1 NLS and a couple of Omega 1s. He decided he liked bloodworms, too, so I think we're over the first obstacles. And Mr EE (who I've had for several weeks) as usual ate everything, and nipped my finger when I wasn't fast enough, lol!
I realised the new guys never had their food move, other than dropping the couple of inches to the bottom of their cup. Certainly not falling 8-9 inches, or floating lazily in a current. So I've been shutting off the baffled filters and removing the tank top. (The older one would go after his food in a waterfall, lol) Already they are learning that's food time!

Yes, I use the Spirolina Brine Shrimp with my SA and African cichlids :) I got the bloodworms as I saw them highly recommended. I don't tell my non-fishy friends I keep fish food in the freezer (freezer bagged of course)
How about you, LOL?
