hi anyone experiencing this problem of ur pacman cat having reduced appetite?

mine has started spitting out pellets that it has eaten
and is no longer fat n round.

i'm feeding hikari sinking lionhead gf pellets,

he used to take damn quite often, but now eats very little, i don't think there is a water issue here as i've been doing my wkly water changes regularly
and this is a recent occurance like for the pass 2 days

try dropping chopped (small pcs) prawn meat in front of him...maybe he's too stressed with the environment. noticed you've been shifting him a bit.
give him some time....sometimes i push the chopped MP near to his mouth using a thin stick, he gobbles it up!

how big is your pac? alternatively, you can give the Hilari Carnivore sinking pellet, the small one. mine takes readily. but do not overfeed, just try with 1 or 2 pcs.

how big a tank you're keeping your pac in? Juz a thought, small fries might be sensitive to water quality too!

It is always safer to feed them with a small-size pellets than larger size pellets.

FYI, I feed the smaller fries with pellet of 1mm grain size instead of larger pellet at the moment.

hi there i think i've been slow and only realised that i've been overfeeding my pacman fry as after eating a big meal of 10 pellets, he will totally stop eating for the next day...

so what i've done was to actually feed him 5 pellets each feeding, so that he will be hungry n his belly will not be too bloated to cause him discomfort.
here is an update of my TL 70mm pacman

i've also noticed that his patterns have darkened, wonder if it is the 15hr/day pl sun tanning that it gets frm my study lamp
