I'm buying several groups of tiny Tropheus fry to start doing side by side trials, putting half of each batch in tank "A" and half in tank "B".
I had thought it might be better to use a lrger tank with a divider, to get conditions more similar.
However, this would allow pollution products from one food to affect the fish on the other food, so I will do separate tanks with water change the same.
first Tropheus arrive this afternoon.

I'm using Tropheus because so many people are fightened of high protein diets and even moderate lipid diets....and then feed very spare diets of carb foods and metro.

So let's see what low carb/ high protein / moderate fat does for them.

2 years down the road, are there any updates rag? :)

I've been feeding my altums exclusively with NLS (with a very occasional treat of frozen bloodworms or earthworm sticks) and they have grown very well and seem largely healthy.

So far, I'm still a very satisfied user of NLS for my fish, even though sometimes the wild discus do seem to prefer ken's veggie sticks (surprisingly though, the earthworm sticks aren't as popular as either NLS or the veggie sticks)

Mine seem to prefer Tetra Colorbits over the other pellets I have tried. It's been a while since I gave them NLS pellets.
I feed pellets only once a day, the rest is frozen enhanced brine shrimp, frozen mysis and tons of freeze dried bloodworm. Need to restock on live blackworms.

God listens. He may not always give you everything you want, when you want it; but he always gives you what you really need, when you need it most!
