  1. Default Red tail shark not eating


    0 Not allowed!
    I bought a Red Tail shark a few days ago and it's in a tank with 5 other tiger barbs. Whenever I try to feed it (sinking discs or vegetables) it doesn't eat it, and the barbs end up eating it. The shark is pretty active and healthy, but it just doesn't eat. It hangs out in a little cave decoration a lot and I usually put it's food in there, but it just swims by it and ignores it. Even when the barbs come to eat it's food the shark tries to chase them away, even though it shows little to no interest in the food. What can I do to make it eat so it doesn't starve?

    Is this in your 20g tank?
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Have you tried bloodworms or brine shrimp? My red tail LOVES meat products but will also eat flakes. It may just be he is still adjusting.

    It probably is still adjusting. But a few hours ago I put a leaf of lettuce under it's little cave and it's barely even touched it.
    And the fish are in a 29g.

    the RTS will never adjust in a 29 because it is way to small of a tank for it to have room to swim around like it needs.

    so he is probably not eating because he's unhappy and cramped in the tank.

    Totally agree, He needs a 4' tank.
