i bought a box of FBW from Darwin ... darn .. to my surprise, my fish doesn't seem to like them .. and worst still, my pearl scales can't digest them well .. all shells comes out .. mad.gif

on closer examination, i realise its different from the usual ones i buy labelled U.S.
Gosh .. anyone using this too??

I have been switching between Jukkon and Hikari Bloodworms every now and then... My fish still eats them OK leh.

I think maybe your fishes are SPG... Only go for ang mor stuffs.

I noticed empty shells in poos but only if I've been overfeeding the fishes.

If I feed 2 cubes per fish, the poos will be made of of mostly empty shells.

If I feed 2 cubes per fish, but each cube fed an hour apart, the poos will come out short and chunky. Bloodworm's shells cannot be found.

So I figured what happened is they ate too much too quickly they didn't have time to digest the worms completely before they get "pushed" out through their digestive track. It's wasteful.

Mine same as yours and I got it from Darwin also.

I feed 2 cubes per day, my goldfish simply loves them. good_very.gif

laugh.gif i just starved them for 13 1/2 days remembered laugh.gif

although i did take some care on feeding when i came back , feeding just a bit gradually. Glad i passed the test of leaving the fish home alone.
