Default What are you feeding your Mpimbwes?

Just wanted to ask what successful breeders are feeding their Mpimbwes? Strictly pellets? They love the freeze dried krill which I would think would help them breed more but I'm cautious because of the float issues. I've had a couple of successful spawns now but any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks guys!

I feed mine 50% NLS and 50% sinking shrimp pellets bought from drsfostersmith. I caution again freeze dried krill and instead would point you toward frozen krill which I feed occationally. Breeding is doing great.

Thanks for the replies! Is freeze dried not very good because they tend to float on the surface? What about presoaking it so that it doesn't? I guess frozen krill would just take the guess work out and eliminate the possibility of float though too, huh?

Thanks for the suggestions! Appreciate it.
