View Full Version : Good Way to get new fish to Eat?

07-13-2010, 11:36 PM
Ever since i started i had a slight problem with getting new fish to eat when i purchase them. In my mbuna tank it would take the new additions about 2 days or so to come and get food at feeding time and i would worry. Now in my 20 gallon tank ive added some new additions and its been about 4 days and they still havnt came to eat . is there any techniques anyone uses that is really helpful that may help my problem? I dont want my fish to die on me because its not eating ... Thnx

Yes, let them settle down and get used to the changes. They will eat fine and when they are ready.

yeah was going to say the same things, the lil guy will let you know when he is hungry, he is probably stressed out from the move to his new tank, fish can go a while without eating so let him chill and settle as lady says
