In all my years of fish keeping have I ever come across a fish as stubborn as my 20" Jar. I've had him now about 6months and when I got him the previous owner stated he was only eating live foods. For the first week I fed him live foods then I didn't feed for the next 7-10 days. On the third week, I feed fresh market shrimp which at first ignored then he began swallowing them and spitting it out. This went on for a few days then he eventually ate a few, and now he's eating 7-8 large shrimp at a time. Fast forward to 1 month ago. Desperately wanting him to eat massivore like ALL of his tankmates, I started stuffing the pellets inside of the shrimp. When I did this, the Jar would eat the shrimp and spit out the pellet each and every time. Now for the past 2 weeks I've only been feeding massivore and absolutely no shrimp and the Jar has been totally ignoring the pellets. Once he actually ate 1 pellet and as I celebrated this accomplishment the Jar spit it out lol. Its now been officially 2 weeks and the Jar hasn't eaten AT ALL and I'm getting concerned. Should I cave in and go back to the fresh shrimp or continue with denying the Jar anything but pellets. I've trained many bass and dats using this method but it's not working here. Any advice would be helpful.
