 I  got  my  pethia  gelius  about  two  months  back.  All  are  alive  and  active  but  and  I  can  say  for  sure  they've  all  grown  a  bit.
 
 But  any  time  I  look  at  them  they  look  as  if  they're  starving.  Bellies  are  always  empty  looking  except  just  after  a  feeding.  The  gill  covers  appear  to  overhang  the  bellies.
 
 I  feed  them  a  DIY  gel  food  (pangasius  +  chicken  liver  +  vitamin  c  +  red  bell  pepper  +  garlic)  and  they  go  bananas  over  it.  They  forage  from  the  bottom  and  the  water  column  and  will  even  gather  enough  courage  to  take  it  floating.
 
 What's  up?  I  mean  seriously  if  they  always  look  like  this  who's  gonna  keep  them?     Chuckle  
 
 They  are  wild  caught.  Do  I  deform  them  or  what?

 I  don't  think  you  should  feed  them  Pangasius    or  chicken  liver.  Replicating  their  natural  diet  will  work  better,  just  go  with  blood  worms  or  Tubifex.  If  not  possible,  Tetra  Bits  or  any  other  good  quality  pellets  will  work.

 Thanks  shovelnose  for  the  suggestion.  As  it  happens  I  have  since  changed  them  to  tetra  bits  in  the  morning  and  DIY  in  the  evening.   Am  trying  grindals  but  they  are  nt  doing  too  well  in  the  heat  up  north.

 Mine  are  doin  well  on  a  diet  of  dry  tubifex  worms  and  spirulina  pellets.  Even  spawned  a  few  times.
 They  seem  to  love  grazing  on  algae  wafers  too.
 Try  feeding  tubifex/bloodworms  maybe  twice  a  day  in  addition  to  your  DIY  food.
