My yellow convict on hunger strike finally gives in.
I have been keeping yellow convicts for a few months now. Unfortunatly I have had to move them around a bit, but they always bounced back from the stress in no time. Not this time though. My larger female decided that flake food wasnt going to cut it, cichlid pellets, no way, krill, yeah right, spirulina, HA!
Well I decided to buy some bbs and the super pimp club bbs hatchery. 16 hours after I set the hatchery up for the first batch I have plenty of bbs to feed. I PRAYED she would eat it. First I squirted some in the tank via pippette. The other convicts except for the really large male LOVED them, but the female on strike wouldnt even look at it.
I then filled the pipe up and sprayed it in her face(fw not sw) like she was a criminal trying to steal a purse. She caved in and took a bite, then two bites, then 8, then 20, until she was hooked like pookie the crack hype from new jack city.
Low and behold she was at the surface of the water inhaling bbs after over a week and a half of barely nibbiling on flakes. I then refilled the pipette with bbs and she ate straight from the pipe. She looks like crap from her strike but I have a good feeling about her new found love of bbs and my willing to feed it to her until I can start mixing in gold pearls to wean her off of bbs.
Man am I happy.
I raise my sword in the air in the battle against clado. I have been beaten in this battle but the war is not over. As my wounds heal I amass another army, an army with many legs, an army of Amano's......
I thrust my tridant into the mass of medusa like staghorn. I am wounded but I refuse to take a knee.
