    Default What else to feed my RopeFish?


    0 Not allowed!
    I feed my RopeFish Krill and Jumbo Bloodworms. Since i've got a Male BristleNose Catfish the BN becomes very protective of the Bloodworms even with algae tablets in tank and bullies my ropefish away (im sure the RF gets a few bloodworms but not the majority) Today i tried feeding my RF frozen Krill from a new bag and he just spit it out (usually takes it by one end and swallows 2-3 down). I did just add some new hiding spots so maybe he is just exploring and doesn't want to eat right now? Not sure what else to feed him as everything else is to small for him to really find before the feeder guppies finish it up. (originally bought the feeders for the Ropefish to have a food source when he wanted when i am away but doesn't really bother them any more because the smart ones are the only ones left and they have a slow reproduction rate for guppies unless he is just slowing taking one or so a month. He is a good size (nickel sized body ~1' long) so he doesn't seem to be malnutritioned but am confused why he didn't eat the krill i just bought him.
