My Fish Hate Pro Gold!

Recommended Posts

Sob!

They leave it and it disintegrates! Now I have a mess in both tanks!

Should I keep trying to see if they acclimate?

Oh noes!! Hopefully, if they get hungry enough :druel , they will eat it and get over their hesitation.

:hummm

did you break up the pellets to smaller pieces? did you soak it quick before feeding them?

I hate how it disintegrates!

I did soak it...didn't break it up though. Perhaps I'll do that for lunch. Now I have to hoover both tanks! Ugh!

That's so weird! I've never had a fish turn its nose up at Pro Gold before. Maybe they're not used to such dense pellets and don't recognize it as food? Do they show ANY interest in it at all?

They dash up to it at first...nose around in it...and then swim to the opposite side of their respective tanks. Bumming me out! I had very high hopes for this food!

Your high hopes aren't misplaced -- it's really great food. I've been feeding it for years.

Hmmm. Do you do a weekly fast day? Maybe offer the Pro Gold the next day, when they're good and hungry.

That's a great idea Ranchu! Thanks!

It's makin' me nuts as they sit and watch me walk by...waiting for me to feed them something different! Spoiled! Spoiled they are!

Try a two or three day fast then feed a very tiny amount see how it goes.

At my house no matter what I am feeding the only time it goes to waste is if I am feeding to much.

Maybe you shold feed enough that each gets 2 pieces. Two or three times a day.

maybe you should taste test it yourself to see how it is?

Another suggestion is to mix it in gel food. :)

My new bag of Pro Gold arrived. I hope Fluffy has not been reading this thread!

I'll let him try it tomorrow after his fast day today.

I hope your fish come around soon, Lola.

Can one of you nice ProGold users post the indredients and the percentages so I can add it to the food ingredient thread I started a few days ago? Or add it there yourself.
