Make sure you feed before lights out. Zebras mainly come out at night to feed, and especially if the fish is new to the tank it might take some time before he ventures out during daytime.

As he gets more comfortable you might want to feed when the lights are on to encourage the fish to get used to coming out in the light as well. Keep an eye on him and I'm sure you'll find that the he does indeed eat, depending on what other fish you keep with him?

i am feeding the zebra fozen bloodworm cat fish pellets and frozen brimeshrimp and micro worms. is there anything else you can suggest to feed him. his tank mates are 2 male cherry barbs 3 female cherry barbs. 2 small clownloach and 5 panda corydoras. do you think they are ideal tankmates.

Hi steflo46,

I would not feed frozen bloodworm unless you chop it to small pieces , a 1 inch zeb can choke on a bloodworm.
The tankmates you mention are far from ideal, especially the clown loaches are way to much competition for a 1 inch zeb.
Greetings,
John

Hi, I have removed your avatar, it was way too big. It's not suppsed to be possible to use such a large avatar, so we'll have a look at why it was allowed in your case.

There are several suggestions as to what to feed your zeb on the board, use the search function and you'll find more info than anyone can put in just one reply ;)

And do a search on clown loaches as well, plenty of info on why you shouldn't keep them with Zebras.
