Just mine or what?
It seems I have a picky eater, but I don't understand it only eats flaked food. I have been using flakes since I got him, he's a flame dg, and I have recently tried to feed him dried bloodworms, dried baby shrimp, and grandule type food. He will maybe nip once or twice at te shrimp, but only eats flakes. Anyone else have this Problem?20 gallon high- 1flame gouriami, 6 albino bronze cories , 3 guppies

I tried to feed my fish some dried worms, and NONE of them liked it including my DG. Try switching to frozen bloodworms. My DG loves them. He also likes betta pellets, and algae tablets.130g: 7 Angelfish, 1 Bolivian, 17 Neon Tetras, 14 Serpae Tetras, 9 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, ? Ghost Shrimp
I've noticed that people HATE it when you point out how stupid they are, so now I try to do it politely.

Yes, dried is not appetising at all to them.
Its not so much he is picky, I don't think, its just he doesn't recognise the dried stuff as food.
Frozen brine shrimp will turn the trick, I'm sure. I think to fish noses it smells like food the second it hits the water...
