Hi all,


Well, as im sure most of you now know, i have 3 x baby rbp that im currently feeding b/wom and krill everyday.
But im finding that there not exactly rushing to their food, and its taking a long time for it all to be eaten.

Is this a normal way for baby p's to behave with their food???

Thanks :biggrin:

You may be feeding them too often, but as long as they eat it I think you are fine.
These are some of the questions I have to give a better answer:
Are you feeding more than once a day? How big are they? Are they eating all of the food or leaving some?

The 3 of them are aroud 2" each in size.
I currently feed them 1 x b/worm cube during the day and 1 x piece of krill late evening.
Like i said they are eating it all, apart from a few miniscule pieces that get eaten by the tetras (i have 5 of them)

Thanks

Either too often, or they need new variety. Try giving them something other than the usual, or even better.. something for them to chase. Honetly, as much as a prime rib eye steak sounds good.. you wouldnt want to be eatting that for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, everyday of the week.
Also, Ps usually go through fads where they ignore any foods given to them. Give it a couple of days and they'll soon be active again.

A little feeder like a guppy or rosey red. That is pretty much all I fed my p's when they were little. Might not be the healthiest diet, but I did give them some shrimp and beefheart. Once they got larger, I pretty much cut out the feeders, now they only get them when company is over and they want to be entertained.
