Hey guys,

Picked up two of these guys from Vebas a few months ago at about 6cm to grow out for my larger tank, both were roughly the same size. Now one of them is significantly larger (by about 1-2cm), the smaller ornatus does not feed as aggressively as the larger one and is much more skittish, what can I do to encourage the smaller one to eat and grow more?


I have small (6cm) silver dollars in the tank to encourage competition for feeding, the ornatus are fed mainly on Hikari carnivore with occasional blood worms as treats. Tank size is a 3 footer filtered by 2 sponges and water changes are 25% biweekly.
