Welcome to GF keeping:p . nice male fish you got there. nice curve and color. :)

jer_chua 01-04-2008 11:35 PM

jus wanna ask how u bros feed FBW to ur gf. coz if u pour the FBW into the water u need to off the filter as it will get very messy.. or u all use the cone net to feed?? i tried using the cone net thing but my gf all blur blur never come eat from the net so i got no choice but to pour the FBW into the tank..
got anyway to train the gf come to eat from the cone thing??

hmm wad i feel is must hav a control.. not say keep feeding.. like feed 75% full then let the fish rest for abt 2-3 hours then give another feeding till 75% full and i feel no night snack..

Feed the pellets that the gf can consume finished within 1 minutes and wait 2~3 hours before next feeding...small amount but more frequent....FBW is the best for gf....:D dont feed them at night as they are getting lazy....

Tail too big. (Remedy: Pump this male so that it wont be so obvious.)

Body not proportion so need to pump more. (Remedy: FBW will do the trick)

Overall, a value of your $$. Color seem good.

Just make sure plenty of fresh water is added when you start to pump this fella..

:)
