Default How long does your new catfish fast?

I bought a Lima cat recently and it doesn't eat anything. Tried mp, live ghost shrimp and silver fish as recommended.

3rd week already although its still active.

6 inch. It doesn't eat pellets either. The ghost shrimp are useful scavengers. Maybe I'll try guppies next. I hate the idea of feeding live food though.

Last night tried MP again in the dark when I got up to pee. No chance.
Patricia is still as slim this morning.
The competition are 3 jaguar cats, very relaxed slow feeders so Pat could get to the food first if it wanted to. The other fish are too small.

ok lets get back to basics then, why isn't your catfish not eating!

hows your PH /Ammonia treating PAt! not stable due to many reasons, lightings, water.

weeks really long time bro, does it hve sunken belly? that might be a problem!

Probably u can setup a separate tank to monitor it, if it got internal parasite then need medical treatment.
