So I've had Xander for a bit over a week, but I cannot get him to eat pellets! I've tried 3 diff brands (tetra, omega one, and hikari), I've tried crushing the pellets, soaking them in garlic juice, and mixing them with other foods he likes and NO LUCK! Xander just takes a bite and spits them right back out.
So I have frozen brine, freeze dried bloodworms, and freeze dried daphnia. Of course I pre-soak the freeze dried stuff before I feed it to him. Is this a good enough diet if Xander decides he's never going to eat pellets? I'll keep trying to feed the pellets, but if he never takes to them, will he get enough nutrition from the other foods?
Xander must just have good taste - he doesn't want any of that processed "crap!"
Also, how much of these foods do you generally feed at a time? I've been doing 3-4 brine shrimp in a feeding, 1 bloodworm (they seem kinda big) in another feeding, and a small pinch of dapnia every now and then to help with his digestion. I usually feed once a day. I don't know how much is good, but I don't want to overfeed (already had one bought of constipation we had to deal with).
