Have your fish ever refused food from a different brand?

  • I know plenty of times with some picky eaters, if the food isn’t exactly the same then they refuse it regardless of how long I let them not eat (up to a point).


    Have your fish ever done this before? And if so, did you ever get them to eat the new brand?

  • Yeah, this happened to me, and nope, I just switched back to the old brand or tried another new one until they agreed to eat.

  • Plenty of times which is annoying. I’ve had to slowly mix the old food with the new food by crushing them both up and feeding. After awhile I slowly mix more of the new brand until the old brand’s food is all gone.

    Okay, that's really smart. Why did I never think of that?

  • Yea plenty of times and 100% did with Gilbert recommended to make them eat the new food. Have even done this with live foods and trying to transfer them to commercial pellets/flakes.
