I had a pair once that really liked live blackworms. (And wouldn't eat much else.) Theoretically, if they're hungry enough, you should be able to wean them to frozen. I try to wean my babies to mysis as soon as possible.

Sometimes it does take them awhile to settle in - and do remember that they can go longer than other fish between meals. As mentioned, they might still be stressed.

Oh, and knowing bangers, they'd just look at the guppies funny. (That is a really funny image...)

Good luck,
Danielle

PS. Why 3? Three is not a good banggai number. Keep an eye on them, and when 2 pair off, get that 3rd out of there ASAP. On the off chance that they're all female, you'll be ok. On the other hand, if they're all male, you'll eventually only have one.

Good luck and keep an eye on them. I thought I had a pair once, but it turned out that they were so stressed from being held in a tank with a more dominant true pair that they buddied up for protection. Once they had their own space and settled down, one make short work of the other...

Behavioral clues have worked for me before, except they were backwards. IME, the females are more aggressive than the males. Think lions. I don't know that aggressive is the right word, but I had a female battle to the death (long sad story) to protect a pregnant male.

Anyway, good luck. I hope they stay peaceful - Banggais are just great fish. :)
