Frontosa and Ghost Shrimps

Postby Burt_Ng » Mon Jan 14, 2019 5:30 pm

HI Everyone,

I am new to this forum and a newbie at raising Frontosa Cichlids. I currently have a 50 gallons tank with two Frontosa. I have given then ghost shrimp to eat and they loved it but all of sudden, they no longer eat the ghost shrimps. Any thoughts on why that may be the case. Thanks in advance.

No idea, but anytime I've had fish refuse food, something else is amiss. What are the water parameters?

To give a good answer, more information is needed - are they eating other foods? What else is in the tank with them? What has changed in the tank recently (around the time you noticed them not eating the shrimp)? Is is a new bag of shrimp?

Lot of unknowns to speculate about a solution.
