Default 5" Male Motoro ray juvenile feeding question

Is there a recommended pellet I can try him on as I'd like to get him on it ASAP. Any thoughts or suggestions would be great thanks

I believe it takes time. Try stuffing the pellets into fish meat to let the fella get used to the taste before fully weaning to pellets.

at this size i'd be more concerned with the pup eating anything at all. not the best size/time to force into pellets

I agree that the pups must be fed 1st with any food it can consume because it is still young

Just a quick update, I've been able to get him eating, hikari sinking carnivore pellets. I've been feeding twice a day.
