What kinda' fruits do you guys use? I've tried apples but they float and the fella' is parked at the bottom of my tank. Tried tomatoes as well but no nibbling at all. Elindra, did yours take the Algae Wafers immediately or did you have to train it first?

Immediate no training required btw tomatoes too acidic for them. They like grape and kiwi but must skin them.

The one i had back in 2005 takes hikari wheat germ (sinking).. its cheaper for me as a student back then..

just did a comparison with hikari algae wafer shows that it is even lower in protein. should be okay for them as well. i rmb mine loved bananas

LOL mine don't beg. He is so bloody lazy he will just sit in front of the tank and look at me -_-"

Mine don't swim either. He crawls on the tank floor. Schmike actually commented he have never seen any PNT crawl underwater till he saw mine.

Hi all,

I was wondering if I can put Gar into my PNT's tank? Right now my tank only have 1 PNT and I have a friend looking for people to adopt his Gar... I'm not familiar with this type of fish so any information would be helpful. Thanx!
