Hey Matt

I don't have Tropheus, but I feed my fish a variety of brands just to vary the diet and hopefully increase the chance that my the fish get everything they need. I feed a mix of:

  • Tropical brand Tanganyika pellets
  • New Life Spectrum Grow
  • New Life Spectrum Algaemax
  • Hikari Frozen Brine Shrimp + Mysis Shrimp
  • Ocean Nutrition Frozen Rotifer
  • Ocean Nutrition Instant Baby Brine Shrimp
  • Live microworms

I only started feeding NLS the last 8 weeks and I have noticed that my fry seem to be growing much quicker than they normally would. It's the only thing that has changed in my fishroom so i think NLS has something to do with it.

Hey @adamgatt 

Thanks for that mate... I am trying to figure out the best way to feed my fish..  Tropheus are notorious with issues such as bloat .. so trying to figure out the best cause of action.

I feed my fish NLS as well. Its good ..

@mick19 Hey, 

Thank you for your reply. Do you mix your food (ie Morning one type and in the afternoon another) or do you normally do one type for a few weeks and change to the next ? 

I have 3 types in my tanks.. 

Tropheus Moorii Blue rainbow, Moorii Chipimbi and Moliro Red .. only had them for few months to a few weeks. Alos I have 6 Petro Yellow Mushi. 

Cheers M
