    If you really want to get minnows, PetsMart/PetCo (curse them) Have them for a decent price. And those stores are everywhere. 13cents. But I'd go with guppies if ya can.

    If they're small just feed more. I get a bunch of random fish for my snake. Some are small and he has 'em down in seconds, but some are big and take a minute. Anything works, really.

    It works. Fillet is good. Not the best thing to feed nothing but... but it works. Use that to get him eating something else. Scenting etc. Along with fillet 'cause its good to,

    Re: ribbon snake not eating

    If you're feeding fish, it depends on how much. My snake gets 10 live fish twice a week. But pinkies can be less often...

    offer him a lot and see how much he eats. That'll give you a good idea how much he needs. Then if you're feeding fish you'll notice he gets hungry again pretty soon, so 4-5 days you do it again.

    But if you're feeding pinkies (like 2-3 per feed) Once a week should be fine... i think. I don't feed pinkies so I'm not sure. It less often than fish and worms.
