    soak pellets in something tasty, and try a drop or 2 of garlic oil (there is also a garlic oil product) to stimulate appetite.
    Gee, I get a sig file?

    Both of those are pretty hard to switch from live/frozen. My fish were always a pain to switch and they were just guppies lol. Thaw a frozen block of food and soak the pellets in that. It also helps to fast them before trying pellets, but I'd only skip the morning feeding and try pellets at night

    That Ghost knife has eaten sinking cichlid gold before reluctantly(He got it from me) I have had the best luck with Hikari Carnivore with knives and bichirs so you might try that

    yes i ordered some the other day. As of yet hadnt had any luck. Last night i feed the crew first and before lights went out i threw in pellets and they were gone by midnight. the blk ghost knife is very active at night so im really hoping it was him who gobbled them down
