Ok here is today's guppy woe since I am obsessed with mine haha. Little Cobra is becoming a very picky eater. Last week I could crush up NLS for small fish and he would eat the powder like a champ. On Wednesday I got the great idea to buy frozen spirulina brine shrimp and give him tiny pieces. He has been eating it lke a CHAMP. He attacks it like a tiger shark even taking pieces bigger than his head and tearing into them lol. He has grown half a centimeter in just this past week. The problem? Now he won't eat the NLS. The only thing he will eat is the shrimp :/
lol, Yeah, I know the feeling. When I first got my boys, they were apparently fed on TetraColor flakes. I got them Crisps of the same brand. It'd go nibble, nom, spit. It got to the point where they refused to eat that they were starting to nip each others fins. Got my boyfriend to go to back to where we got them and got the same food they were being fed, that they were used to. So they finally started eating again. I thought that if they got hungry enough they would eat the crisps, even crushed but nope. I have to say I don't really know what to do to make them go back to what they should. I got a tuna thingie from WalMart, Tank Nibblers, and they go after it in a frenzy when I stick it to the tank but they eat it and the flakes both though I have seen warning signs of them not liking the flakes - spitting them back out.
I would say when he gets hungry he'll eat. I don't think they're quite dumb enough to allow themselves to literally starve. I know they're not bright most of the time, but...
Just beware when they get older. I think I might have a gay guppy, not that I'm overly concerned. I just see Sun, my creamsicle-colored one, displaying fairly often for our pink/purple one. I think I need to get some ladies at some point soon here. At least for them to display over.
