      Hey guys,

      Ive just recently bought a Siamese tiger fish (4cm) atm he eats mainly blood worms, i tried chopping prawn up into small pieces hoping he would eat it but almost completely ignored it, after realizing that was all that was coming it got some in its mouth and then refused to eat it. Will he eventually eat other things when it gets bigger?

      Any advice in raising these fish would be great!

      dont worry about it. they are not very picky eaters. he will grow to eat MP. if anything, starve for a day or so and he will pick up the MP.

      i feed mine BW and baby guppies.

      feed it up on what it likes for a while then try starving it for a while and only offer it what you want to feed.
