Feather dusters? They eat pods and such. small crustaceans and odds and ends on the rock- It may NEVER eat prepared food. A long, slow death for it if it doesn't eat flakes or bloodworms. A mistake IMO.

From what I have read people have had some success getting them to eat feeding live blackworms.


But they are a very difficult fish to keep unless, as has been stated, you put them in a big, very well established tank with lots of micro-fauna thriving.

I'm not one of those people. The ones I have brought in never touched anything I threw at them, including black worms.
