I went to a killiefish show over the weekend, and came home with a trio that went into my 30 gal community tank. I hope I didn't just consign these 3 beauties to a slow death from starvation and harrassment. Any thoughts on how I might best be able to make these guys happy?
The guys at the show said they should do alright. Tho they prefer live food, if hungry, they will eat just about anything.
I feed flake, sinking shrimp pellets, freeze-dried bloodworms, and veggies. My tank is quite heavily planted, with lots of rocks and wood - caves, niches, overhangs, etc. I have 3 small schools of tetras, 3 dwarf guorami, 3 cories, 2 black mollies, an br. pleco, and several otos.
So far, the killies seem to be hanging pretty low deep in the plants or in rock caves. They haven't hassled anyone, nor has anyone else hassled them. But the killies seem a little shy and my other fish are such pigs, I don't know if they are leaving enough food for the killies.
If I add some live food, how do I make sure my foodhogs don't snarf it all?
Any thoughts on how I can make these beauties happy in my tank?
