    Hi guys I have a racoon fly that is not eating as he should. What do you guys feed your raccoons? I've tried formula 2 but not much success, the threadfin fly loves it .

    you can try feeding ocean nutrition brine shrimp plus flakes and if that doesnt work boil some normal garden peas, remove the skin and mash it into a paste, you can also try hake and/or prawn mash.

    your best bet though (if possible) is to QT the fish on its own and start off by putting a big blob of prawn or hake mash on the floor of the tank, after a while it should start taking little pieces and progress from there.
