    Question Feeding S.American BumbleBee catfish


    0 Not allowed!
    I bought 2 south american bumble bee catfish( Microglanis iheringi) on Monday. They have been eating very well. They ate two of my 0.5" cardinal tetras but that is beside the point. I have also been feeding them Hikari carnivore sinking pellets after the lights go off. I do not want to over feed them. They are the only bottom dwellers in the tank and I do not plan on getting anymore.

    How many pellets should I be dropping in for them?
    How often do I feed them?

    Oh well. i got alot of views but no replys. Its all good.

    Incase anyone cares. I have been feeding 2 catfish pellets at night and have been alternating with 4 cichlid sinking pelletes every other day. Seems to be enough since they haven't eaten my other two small cardinal tetras.

    I kept one of these shy guys years ago. I never lost any fish and he spent all day hideing. If I could get bloodworms to sink fast enough he would come out and eat them. Otherwise the sinking pellets at night seemed to keep him appeased.

    Frozen Brine Shrimp also worked well.
