African Butterfly Stopped Eating!?
I just bought an ABF about 3 weeks ago and until about 3 days ago he's been eating great. I've been feeding em' mostly mealworms and a cricket here and there if I find one on my porch. He was eating great about 2 and a half to three mealworms a feeding, a whole cricket, and he'd even eat some flakes that are for my other fish. Now he's just suddenly stopped and won't touch a thing. It's making me worried cuz I bought em' 3 hours away and I'd hate for it to be all for nothing. How can I get the guy to eat? The food literally brushes against his face and he completely ignores it...
All of my other fish are eating like pigs. I've got several Angels, South American Cichlids, Featherfin Catfish, Corys, Odessa Barbs, Bloodfins, Loaches, African Leaf Fish, Whiptail Cat, Bichir... Only my African Butterly refuses to eat. My Bichir is pretty happy about my ABF's "fasting" because for every mealworm and cricket the ABF misses means that my Bichir gets to chow down on it instead!
