They ate within five minutes of being in the tank yesterday but not much. Could the current just be too strong for them to find the food? or are they still just learning the tank and will be able to hoo after it when comfortable ? Are clowns usually pretty aggressive in going after the pellets when settled in? They seem to only eat if the pellet just so happens to end up in front of their face.
Just want to make sure they will be able to go after and find the food as they acclimate more.
Thanks for any help ahead of time!
Turning the flow off will make it easier for them to feed however, this is part of the acclimation process so I wouldnt worry much. In a week or 2 they should be actively feeding more.
