    @macca_75 convinced me to take on a couple of Banggai, should of known he was very biased towards these fish however as I purchased 7 of them about 4 years ago and all died it took a lot of convincing.

    The two i got had been tank bread and looked like they eat well at the shop. In the tank now for the last 4 weeks and 1 eats like a pig however the other did not eat for what seemed to be 2~3 weeks. I thought I would be fishing him out and down the loo. In desperation in the last week I used a couple of drops of Kent garlic (had the bottle for years never used) mixed with the frozen food. Needless to say I now have two ravenous Banggai & a tank of crazy fish....

    I will over the coming week reduce from my two drops / frozen feed to one drop then hopefully drop it all together. The rest of my fish have done great without garlic so dont want to create more work once the banggai is confidently feeding.

    So just a reminder to those having issues with feeding remember the Garlic... :)

    You will love them as much as I in time.....

    Hopefully you got a male/female pair.
