so ive had these tetras for about 3-5 days now and they're not eating the food i gave them and its really pissing me off. i bought the hikari micro wafers and they swim up to them and just swim away. how long does it take for them to accept the food.

are you feeding flakes as well? maybey the pellets are just too large for them to handle

if you dip your finger with the flakes into the water then release the food then the flakes will evenly disperse and on all levels better, giving your fish a better chance of getting it

Flake will probably work. Mine are less than a week in the tank and will feed in the upper half of the tank.
