While everything looked good from the start, but two weeks after getting him home, my new friend (known as pancake), still wouldn't eat. I kept feeders in the tank and tried hand feeding worms every night to no success. Finally he accepted a worm two days ago but wouldn't eat again afterwards. I didn't have a chance to get to the store for some new feeders until today and...

SUCCESS, I saw him take down 3 minnows in the first few minutes after they hit the water. I could not be happier. I'd heard it takes time for these guys to get acclimated enough to feed but I wasn't expecting two weeks.

Just thought I'd spread my joy
