I've recently collected a green sunfish (lepomis cyanellus) and a mountain
redbelly dace (phoxinus oreas). I've placed both in a 30 gallon community
tank. They have been in the tank for five days. The green sunfish is not
taking frozen bloodworms, frozen shrimp, or pellets. I read that the mountain
redbelly dace is an herbivore/detritivore. I'll be trying spirulina discs.
Would appreciate suggestions for either/both of these species.
