    Ropefish Only Eating Bloodworms

    Hey y’all! I know they’re not polypterus but this is the closest forum I found. I’ve had two young ropefish in a 55g community tank for about a month. I made the mistake of feeding them primarily frozen bloodworms with some frozen brine shrimp for most of this time. After further reading I...

    Firstly, sorry for the dirty acrylic. Feedings are wet and wild over here and I didn’t expect my Tat to be so bold today. For the past few weeks I’ve seen what I thought was my Tat taking bites of food (mainly shrimp) from the corner of my eye. Once or twice during my pellet feedings I could...

    Gulper after meal

    Have had my gulper almost 4 weeks and I think he finally ate his first meal last night. Anyone know what they act like after they've eaten? It was just a gourami so not big, but he seems stressed and the only thing other than eating must be pH which I've managed to keep at 7 even though my...
