I have never fed my adult colonies any other way then 2-3x/week (if not less at one point)... like Ron rotating a fair amount of variety in one of those feedings a week.. so I have nothing else to compare it to.. and my Kigoma females are spawning like clockwork. It would be an interesting experiment Darren for you to feed your Burundi colony everyday for a period of time, say a month.. and compare the results since you do an excellent job of logging everything I feed only 2-3x/week for other health reasons not related to spawning, but I can tell you that a few of my spawns do seem to come after a water change and a day or two without food.

I think your colonies spawn frequently Darren primarily because of your large tanks combined with your centralized filtration system, and large clutch sizes I attribute to the maturity of your females and a nutritionally balanced diet.. just my theory..
Thanks for contributing to...
