As far as my wallet and trips to pet store every couple days, I kinda want him on pellets..another person told me feed him feeders til he's 6in long. But i feel like he'll even be more hesitant for pellets after that long. Iv tried going a couple days, even more and he doesn't even touch those pellets.
I hand feed him and he goes crazy as soon as my hand goes in there. Then I put some pellets In there and they end up just sitting there making waste. I mean ultimately feeders aren't that much of a pain. But when he's bigger I don't wanna have to buy 72 fish a week
Ultimately he eats awesome and have no prob with the getting him to eat. He even got a horrible heater burn(that's the only thing that makes since) on his stomach, and right after was still wanting /eating food. Which I didn't really want him to. But a week of melafix and water change he's just about healed.
