Should I feed him like once every 2 days or what do you suggest.
I got a black rhom from Brandon also, He has been eating guppies for the last 2 weeks since I havent been able to get him off live food until last night I fed him freeze dried krill tied to thin fishing line and the other end to a rock so it was floating in the middle of the tank. He would come out and take the shrimp when I turned the lights off usually within a half hour.

mine wouldnt eat anything but live fish at first but that gets old fast. I starved him for a couple days then fed him frozen shrimp pieces. He doesnt eat them as fast as feeders, but he eventually eats it all.
