Give him time to settle, try not to worry too much. Have you tried live bait? Thats what I used when I first got mine especially live bloodworm. Their suppose to love live tubifex maybe try something like that. He,ll soon pick up when it's feeding time some take longer to settle in.

He finally ate! I picked up some live black worms and segregated the loaches. I spot fed him with an unused medicine syringe and he gobbled them up. We were so happy.

So sorry to hear that it's horrible when you lose a fish.

Thanks.

They were doing fine. All eating well an the rope is getting on well with the loaches.

I just noticed that the elephant nose has an injury on his snout. It seems like it got cut and a white piece of cartilage is poking out near the base. He hasn't been rooting and seems to be guarding it.

Has anyone had any experience? Is this something that can heal. I'd hate to see him suffer and starve. He hasn't rated since thursday night.
