Wild Multi food

Postby navytom » Sun Mar 05, 2017 1:39 pm

i just ordered 4 wild multies (2M 2F) for my new tank. and they will be here in a few weeks. it just occurred to me that the wild caught might eat differently then normal. i have read that they will pretty much eat anything but i havent found anything referring to wilds, I was planning on .5mm NLF but i'm not so sure now that i ordered the wilds and they will be 2"+ full grown upon arrival. any help would be nice.

Are you you don't mean 2cm? I've never seen a multi anywhere close to 2".
For food, I would try cyclops eze if they won't eat the NLS.

Your importer and/or retailer likely fed them something while in quarantine and while traveling. Ask what they were feeding. Anything can happen, but my wild fish have eaten just the same as the tank raised fish.
