just like what bro shoikmc has said, our fishes are not that dumb to starve themselves to death.

I pumped my whole comm for close to a month on quarantined live feeders... Then all of a sudden stopped the feeding. 3days later threw in MP, 1 ate. Next day throw in some more, more take. By end of the week, all are on MP. So far it's worked for me... The only one I haven't had any success with so far is the L14... 2 months already and I still haven't seen it eat anything... Somehow, he still seems to have a lot of energy, coz when I try to shift him to observe the stomach, he fights back... Really fights back.

I had this problem too.
After separating according to these size; in different tanks (2 ft).
I started feeding them bloodworms first. After a few weeks
they slowly started taking MP (cut to small size).

To me it might be because they get "bullied" cos they are smaller.

L14 feed pallets will do, don't think got chance to feed on mp with other fish around. Just drop the pallets and dont on light, your L14 will go out look for food when hungry.

The value of the fish is inversely proportional to the success of converting to mp. Example , if you have a ST or platinum gar or snow arowana , would you starve them to weeks or months ?? you will be afraid of fish being stunted .

I think stop feeding or stare them for few days or a week they might take MP. Mine not only take MP, pellets and sweet cone also wrack.
