This is sweeeet, i started feeding my reds shrimp about 3 weeks ago and all of a sudden they lost interest in feeders. I thought they were going to stay like that, but in the past 5 days or so ive noticed there getting a whole lot more active, and they dont care at all now if im near the tank. There appetite seems to be increasing a whole lot too. Theres 5 reds between 2 and 3 inches. I fed them 2 large feeders, and since i had friends over i gave em one of those wierd looking goldfish with the big bulges all over thier bodys. I was making him nice and fat for a month or so. They still looked hungry so i gave em 2 more jumbo prawns. This was all in about 5 minutes. I thought i would feed my crayfish so i dropped in a pellet, and before it even hit the botton 2 reds started fighting for it and 1 of em ate it. Now im getting confused cause they never take interest in the pellets before
. So i drop in another one closer to the crayfish, and then another red comes and eats that one right away too. So now theyve all eaten a shitload today, and my crayfish is probably starving. But can this be bad for my reds? eating the pellets, there pretty damn hard, will this digest ok?

it could just be that the shrimp isn't as filling as feeders
ya but i gave em 2 large feeders, and one of those funny looking fat goldfish before i even threw in the shrimp. Usually i give them 1 shrimp and thats good enough. these guys are pigs
