I don't know if many out there have a mixed pond like I do, but I noticed that my goldies are not the same when it comes down to eating. The young bubble eyes and the young black moors are constantly looking for floating flakes (despite the worms I throws) The older ranchus, Ryukin, lionheads and orandas are bottom eating. The pearlscale is about the boldest fish i got (even more than the single koi in the pond). On a side note, the dojo loaches are the funniest as there is always one showing up during feeding worms otherwise they are completely uninterested in all foods types i toss in. I also noted some of my fish eating boiled carrots so I am all excited. I've been having a hard time finding stuff they will actually eat other than regular pellets. They never seem excited for food. Spoiled brats. Anyone notice a pattern for certain types?
