I've had a similar issue before on a tank that had a prefilter. I pre soaked the pellets and had no problems.

I agreed with others, something wrong with NLS you have there. THERA A sink very fast. I recently switch to Dainichi Veggie Deluxe, FX and Ultima krill. I still feed my moba NLS here and there.

Brad,

I feed frozen Canadian mysis & frozen plankton.

I also make a home made jello for them (top secrete ingredients ).

Thanks,
Russ

I hope your not mixing vodka in with your jello. My fish really can't hold their liquor.

Why yes, in the spirits of the Olympics, my fronts are getting Russian vodka with their jello. One jello shot dramatically increases spawning activities. More than one jello shot, not so good

Yes sir Gags! The angry look on your avatar has intimidated me ;)

Current batch of jello:
- Agar (plant based gelatin).
- Frozen Canadian mysis
- Frozen plankton
- Meat lovers flake high in protein
- FD krill fines
- Veggies - spirulina powder.

Next batch will be
- Agar
- Shrimp
- Green peas
- Spirulina powder

As mentioned above, one shot of Russian vodka is OK. More than one shot is "no good" as the fry will not know who their daddy is
