Jawjagrrl Posted July 2, 2022 Share Posted July 2, 2022 I got some lovely angelfish babies (dime size) around two weeks ago after an extended ship. I only lost one, a Philippine Blue superveil that the seller threw in as a freebie. Another in the same bag came through ok, as did the third fish in the bag, which was very well packaged. I loved the remaining superveil so much I added more a week later from the same hatch, doing great. They get a mix of crushed xtreme krill flake, coop Fry food and live baby brine shrimp. The original superveil is about 20% smaller than his hatchmates, but seems healthy enough except for size and disinterest in food. He has even spit out bbs! But then I will see him foraging, just not sure he is eating anything he finds. ADVICE NEEDED: What can I do for this little fella, is this a case of Failure to Thrive? Sometimes he wants to be near (but not too close) to the others, while other times I will see him off to himself (Qt is a half filled 75). He'll seem interested in food, but then spit out what's offered, usually while near the bottom of the tank while the others are scrumming up top. No one is bullying him that I have observed. I did just get in a new 5gal I was setting up for my killies, but I could set up for this angel for awhile first - maybe intimidated by his bigger siblings? I sure hate to lose him, beautiful markings and hopefully a future in the angel side of my dual 75s project. Here he is with his Bulgarian seal point friends from the same breeder. 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
