Sinking pellets for Bichir
I got a Tiny Bichir senegalus a month ago and he has already grown loads.
Id like to feed him sinking pellets but im not sure which ones are suitable...? I currently feed him bloodworms, Krill and Cod.
Iv tried some sinking foods i already had but so far he doesnt take em...
Thanks!20gal- Honey gourami's, Endlers, otto's and minnows.

I weaned mine onto sinking pellets but they do enjoy some live food now and then. Look for a pellet that does not expand much since this can cause intestinal problems with your bichir.

Mine used to eat the Standard Sinking pellets. Just be sure to break up the pellet to 'bite size' pieces. If you had loaches or catfish they will 'suck' on them so breaking them up isn't a requirement.
