    What type?
    Are they finicky feeders?
    How often do you feed?
    How many do you keep?

    2 "goldies" at the moment. Only lost a few during a move in the past. Super easy to keep. Feed 1 to 2 times a day. Eat any meaty foods and pellets flakes etc so super easy to feed and keep.

    Generally easy but needs to feed at least 3 times a day. Some may take a while to eat flakes and pellets. Depending on size of tank one male to several females.

    usually i haven't had luck with them , but recently i have been working hard on them , just make sure they have some form of food in them , i feed enough so that there is no extra food floating in the tank but ill finish a cube of mysis through the day . also i noticed that he pecking order is very rough . they always trying to be the dominant one so the 2 that are dominant tend to keep pushing the others around esp during feeding . tank size would make a difference here as well . So far thats how its going for me .
