With a new fish I would actually suggest feeding them whatever it takes to get them eating. Once accepting the captive environment, they are usually quite easy to wein onto something better. It's just something I would not feed as a regular food sup long term.
I guess I could look for other live food, but I think this is all my LFS's provide. Do you have any foods in particular that you use when getting a fish acclimated to a tank? (live or frozen)
pointed out the garlic works amazingly well to stimulate a feeding response. Just be careful to only use a few drops or you will overload the senses and confuse the fish. Other than fresh caught seafoods, I only feed frozen mysis (Priscine Energetics
) when meaty foods are rotated into the feeding schedule.
