    Default My discus will not eat beef hearts



    Hello all,

    My discus are not eating beef hearts. I purchase the frozen San Francisco Bay beef heart; it just fowls up the water. They eat the pellets and blood worms as well as brine shrimp. They are about 4, I thought it was good for them to eat it, to grow out. I am trying to feed different foods but this particular food they are not having it. Any suggestions for alternative food, would be appreciated..

    Most all discus will each freeze dried black worms. They have a high protein value.

    Maybe they're vegan?

    Mine won’t eat it either. Try the freeze dried black worms.
    21 Discus, 7 Green Tree Frogs, 3 Eastern Dwarf Tree frogs, 1 Coastal Carpet Python,6 sawshelled/Murray river turtles, 2 dogs, a cat, 2 kids and a wife. Phew...what a mouthful

    If they're eating a good mix of other foods don't worry about it. I fed my discus pure deer heart grated on parmesan cheese grater...the result is pure heart meat that looks like blood worms! My discus loved it and grew like weeds :thumbsup;

    Agreed with what the others have said. Just another suggestion coming from me, when I had issues with my discus eating certain foods -- I stopped feeding for a day and they started eating anything!

    Some discus are more picky than others though. Good luck. I say as long as they're getting a varied diet, then it doesn't matter if they don't eat beef heart.
