As some of you may know, I recently started a 10 gallon and got a colony of Multies (Neolamprologus multifasciatus). I'm just wondering if anyone else finds them to be picky eaters like I do. I've fed them flakes, several different types of crushed up pellets, crushed up mealworms, and freeze-dried bloodworms, but the only thing they eat is the flakes. Everything else they take in and then spit back out. I bought some frozen brine shrimp to try, but I'm not sure anymore.
How long have you had them again? Only a couple weeks right? Maybe just adjusting to their new environment still. Have you tried any kinds of frozen foods? Most picky eaters will take that any day. And brine shrimp actually sounds good too, they might take that. Normally multis are not as picky as others. Make sure you get it into their territory, so they feel comfortable eating it their.
