They never really came out much and I did not see them feed.
On the other hand, the smaller fish, is out often, started feeding immediately and seems to be doing well. I don't understand this as the larger ones looked very robust and the store had them two weeks before I picked them up.
I guess that is the way it goes sometimes with hillstreams.
Hopefully, I can find more in the future.

I have had varying levels of success with different sinking wafers but have recently started using JBL NovoTab which is just great for hillstream loaches. The disks can be stuck to the glass (a favourite for gastros) or on stones (which the Pseudogastromyzon Cheni prefer) the sticky nature means it does not go floating round the tank with the current even if positioned in front of the outflows. Before discovering this food i used Tetra TabiMin secured with some freeze dried brine shrimp, not as effective as the JBL food but appreciated by the loaches.
I tried that after seeing how successful it was in Emma's tank but the hillies ignored it completely and eventually the shrimp ate it all.Jim Powers wrote:Tetra Delica gel spread on the tank glass or on rocks, is another favorite, but it is no longer available on this side of the pond.
