Help with my L'46

Post by MikeGuerreiro »

hello people,

I need help, there are about 3 weeks with my first paycheck I bought 2 L'46 :D . They have about 3 cm, and i never saw them eating, although they are not skinny or anything, i give them food before the lights go out, but I'm always wondering if they will eat or not .. .. now I'm give them Artemia, shrimp, zucchini, bloodworms, pellets, and mussels .. is something wrong in the food I give them? Some tips to improve?

The aquarium has many hiding places, but no substrate, I was thinking put Ada Amazon I, or sand, which is best for them?

At the end of the month I will buy a camera and shot some pictures.

Greetings to all

Sorry for my english

Hi
I never see mine eat and I have bare bottom tanks and they are ok as I expect yours are,don't worry diet looks ok.My zebs don't touch zucchini so I substitute it for veggie based flake or pellet crushed up,check your fish are big enough (over inch and a quarter in size)to eat bloodworm so they don't choke on them!. :wink:
I tend to get the smallest bloodworm I can just for the zebs to be on the safe side. :aok:
I found when I put sand in my tank they tend to dig and flick it every where so rather not have it and easier to clean IMO.

Caution is a most valuable asset in fish keeping, especially if you are the fish.

Personally I will never feed bloodworms to my zebras until they are at least 2 in. TL (over 5 cm).
What makes the common person uncommon is common sense.
