Embarassed I have to ask a question. I bought a clown knife about two weeks ago. Thought that it was the coolest fish I have ever seen. The lady at petsmart told us that it ate live food. So I bought twenty feeder fish and he has not touched a one. What am I doing wrong? I just found out last night that we are suposed to turn the light off. We did that and he just swam arround. I still have the same amount of feeder fish in there. I have been putting blood worms in the tank and he is munching on those. My tank is only ten gallons, ( I found out last night that this fish is going to get huge ) is that the problem? He shares his home with three skirt fish, and two silver dollers. Please somebody help me.
