clown pair lost appetite, esp the male

Postby natureAddict » Fri Dec 20, 2013 7:26 am

hi,
The smaller clown, male, is eating very little. He would go near the pellet and back off, as though its bad smelling !!! whereas the female would wallop everything. His favourite food is my special blend of tuna meat spirulina and garlic, but not very much, just a few bites.

Thanks for your response :)

In a clown pair,the female usually gets the lion´s share of the food offered.Does yours look ok and is breeding?.If yes,I wouldn´t worry :wink:
Is he wild caught?.Perhaps parasites? :?

Not breeding yet. Tank bred. The female is more than double the size of the
male. I'm quite concern :(

What can I do to encourage breeding :))
