1) Crushed Flakes:
Need help on feeding "Multifasciatus"
If we grind up the flakes for smaller size, do we have to ensure the flakes are sunk or is it OK to leave it floating. The reason for asking this question is that, it is tough to get multi's to the surface to feed. Secondly if they are new for the tank & then they are skittish/shy & the moment you hands go over the tank to drop the food all the multi's get into the nearest shells.2) Sinking Pellets:
0.5mm pellets is it good to drop the whole pellet or even this should be crushed ?? Secondly if they are new for the tank & then they are skittish/shy & the moment you hands go over the tank to drop the food all the multi's get into the nearest shells.3) Freeze Dried Black Worms:
Excellent food choice, but unconsumed can create havoc with the water parameters.
Unconsumed food floating on the surface is easier to remove than the food the substrate/sand (which is a real pain). Do the multi's really scavenge ?? But none have mentioned clearly that they scavenge. My worry is more because if one is unable to remove the unconsumed food, this will change the water parameters in a big way which might not be good & might be irreversible.
I know eventually hunger will force them to eat, am panicking because am a newbie.
