Wondering what I should feed these fish. I got two rhoms from aquascape and they're TINY. Is there anything other than blood worms that I can try?

I put Hikari pellets in a food processor / coffee grinder and started with that. As they grew I would crush them with my fingers into larger portions.

Make a hook out of some fishing line and a paper clip, attach a shrimp or fillet piece and suspend it in the tank. Makes removing leftovers easier.

I can always count on your advice! I really appreciate it being an amateur

haha thats awesome! I think im going to try that now. They will only accept blood worms... I want them to accept pellets. One of them accepted some omega one freeze dried shrimp but only once, and the other one doesn't. The one in my bigger tank wont come even close to the top of the water.

But the aggression on these are unreal even just being so small. I had tiger barbs in each tank before I got the rhoms just to cycle it, had. They were taking chunks out of them and giving putting them in shock lol
