    Being a catfish it should eat anything. Have you tried hikari carnivor pellets. They are a smaller version of the massivor pellets.

    Once they are bigger, I have heard folks feeding them raw market shrimp and tilapia fillets.

    Thanks for the responses. I tried blood worms and he housed them. Then I tried frozen mysis shrimp he housed them too. Guess I was over reacting.
