 Hi  All,
 I  have  neon  eye  tetra,  cardinal  tetras,  galaxy  rasboro,  ottos,  micro  rasboros,  mosquito  rasboros,  red  cherry  shrimp,  needle  nose  shrimp,  rili  shrimp,  sundadanio  axelrodi,  Pseudomogil  paskai.  I  notice  that  the  fish  do  not  eat  food  nowadays.  They  bite,  eat  and  spit  out.  Out  of  4-5  only  1  is  consumed  that  too  only  by  some  fish.  I  have  cycled  through  varius  fish  food  without  much  success.  I  have  used  Tetrabites,  which  they  do  not  touch,  used  Hikari  which  they  sometimes  take,  jbl  micro  granules  nova  bite,  which  they  do  not  touch  the  non  red  ones,  one  more  JBL  feed,  which  they  do  not  touch.  I  am  running  out  of  ideas.  I  have  3  other  fish  tanks,  one  which  has  guppies  and  2  other  with  bettas,  which  come  and  gobble  all  these  fish  food.  I  asked  Umino  and  they  told  my  fish  could  have  worms  initially  asked  me  to  use  tetracide,  and  then  later  told  me  not  to  use  as  it  may  end  up  killing  fish.
 I  do  not  see  any  sign  of  any  disease.  But  the  fish  seem  to  hide  except  when  I  put  food.  I  change  water  once  a  week.  It  is  a  planted  tank,  so  I  dose  macros  and  micros.
 
 Are  my  fish  sick?  How  to  treat  them?
 
 Thanks  to  provide  directions.
 
 Regards,
 Hari

 If  you  do  not  see  any  visible  signs  of  infection  then  not  to  worry.
 How  often  do  you  feed  them?
 Try  skipping  food  for  2-3  days.
 
 My  guess,  they  are  having  plenty  of  RCS  to  feed  on  Smile

 I  feed  them  only  once  a  day.  I  skipped  feeding  them  for  1  day  and  then  fed  them,  they  loiter  around  eagerly  but  still  spit  out  the  food.  I  did  notice  some  of  my  RCS  going  down,  but  other  fish  like  micro  rasboros  are  too  small  to  eat  shrimplets,  and  they  do  not  eat  food.  I  also  have  4  Amano  shrimp  quite  healthy.
 
 Mine  is  a  planted  tank  24x18x18,  with  chiller  (25-26  deg  Celsius).  CO2  is  around  1  bps  on  timer  9  hours  a  day  (starts  before  light  and  closes  before  light  switch  off)  and  lighting  is  T5HO  -  8  hours  a  day.  (6am  to  10am  &  5pm  to  9pm)  on  timer.
 
 They  have  not  eaten  properly  for  the  last  30-40  days,  fish  look  healthy  only.  Tank  does  not  have  algae.  Tank  does  have  plants  and  different  kinds  of  moss.

 Hari,  nothing  to  worry.  RCS  breed  and  they  will  keep  them  fed  Smile
 Make  sure  you  do  not  see  much  left  over  food  on  the  substrate.  As  long  as  a  little  is  all  thats  left,  the  RCS  can  take  care.  Ive  seen  cardinals  and  some  others  take  a  whole  pellet  and  chew  around  and  spit  them  out.
