 Hi  all,
 Yesterday  i  bought  a  pair  of  small  angels(P.  scalare)  about  1"  in  length.
 They  were  the  most  active  ones  in  the  LFS  tank.
 They  are  not  eating  regular  pellets  which  other  fishes  eat.
 I  noticed  that  they  were  trying  to  eat  leaves  from  Cabomba  plant  which  is  there  in  their  tank.(i  think  its  weird  as  they  are  carnivores)   
 They  are  housed  in  a  15gal  established  tank  with  a  sponge  filter.
 
 Any  suggestions  regarding  feeding  them?
 
 Thank  you,
 Tejas

 usually  thay  are  used  to  eating  live  worms.  so  you  have  to  start  with  live  worms  and  slowly  suppliment  their  diet  with  dry  food.
 
 very  choosey  about  food

 If  a  fish  is  fed  regularly  a  single  type  of  food,  sometimes  it  fails  to  recognise  other  item  as  food.
 Give  them  their  preferred  food  once  a  day,  and  second  time  give  them  your  regular  feed.
 Over  a  period  of  time  they  will  start  to  accept  other  items  as  food.
 Give  them  a  varied  diet  over  a  period  of  time.
 I  always  vary  diet  of  my  fish  on  a  daily  basis,  I  have  2-3  open  tins  running  at  a  time.
 When  they  get  empty  I  always  change  the  brand,  the  only  feed  that  remains  constant  for  me  is  Tetra  bits,  which  is  given  once  a  day,  second  time,  and  they  are  always  given  different  food.
