Thread: flake food?

  1. #1

    Default flake food?

    0 Not allowed!
    I noticed today that I have 2 (out of 6) neons doing slight head stands. This was after feeding this morning. I researched a bit and found a thread that mentioned the same activity and was contributed to feeding of flake food. They are otherwise healthy, and I have noticed it is not as obvious as it was a couple of hours ago. Are there any other possibilities out there?

    Neons will "rest" head down. When I had them years ago, I often found them in this position when I turned my tank lights back on each morning. If their color is good, they eat vigorously, and are otherwise behaving normally, I wouldn't worry about it.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    I could cut down on feeding, sure. I usually feed in the morning. Sometimes in the evening but lightly. I wasnt too worried, but it never hurts to check around. Thanks....

    All is well I will try food that sinks quickly and see if it makes a difference.
