Iíve got pellets and flakes, also have Hikari mysis which is almost too large for them. Iím going to grab some brine shrimp and wondering if any of you recommend blood worms?

Will just tell you what I do. Crushed up flake and/or freeze dried brine shrimp, ultimately they get either crushed up pellets or a small NLS pellet until they graduate to real pellets. If I have freeze dried mysis on hand I might crush some up for them as well. I like to keep them with some driftwood branches as fry. My kaps as fry seem to like it and will graze on the algae and micro critters growing on the driftwood at non-feeding times. Bloodworms not part of the program for me, only time I use bloodworms is freeze dried as a treat for some SA species.

Thanks. Like John said, they’re pigs. Going with flake and NLS and Northfin .5 pellets. Couple times a week some Hikari mysis. All 26 are alive and well, tough little buggers. It’s going to be tough thinning the herd as they get bigger, but I’m thinking 9-12 in an 8 foot 375 gallon might be pushing it as adults.
