You'll want to start out with small meaty foods. Plankton, Formula One, mysis, and enriched brine are good foods to start. Please note that brine shrimp are not the best foods to KEEP fish on, but it often will get them started. Once the fish associates you with food, you can try some other items like pellets and flakes. Mine was very finicky at first but will now eagerly gulp down just about anything I throw in the tank.

It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labelling.

You should already have whatever it was eating at the shop. That is step number one. From there you want to work your way up to a high quality pelleted food. If it only eats live brine, start frozen. If it only eats one type of frozen, get it eating a variety. If it eats a variety of frozen, start trying to get it on a high quality pellet. I only feed and recommend New Life Spectrum exclusively.
