Jammer, now that you said that ...... May I ask, why you never showed us pictures of your Halembe's Before, I allege that you are biased towards your Mobas ..... post pictures and make it snappy !!!! I bet your Helembes are equally beautiful and I cant find any excuse for you now showing us those fish !!! You might even force me to start a war here in cyphos with a new post : More beautiful - Fronts vs Gibbs and you will have a hard time cooling everyone's nerve. And yes, your dear friend Denzio will be on my side this time with quotes like "WHY NOT ???"

Looking at your Mobas though, I must revise my perception that feeding once a day doesent make your Cyphos grow as much as feeding thrice. That has been a learning lesson for me from your post (though I must admit that your video is awesome). I could perhaps be correct in saying - good water quality + clean tank + limited feeding + correct hours of lighting. But then, can you let us know of your water parameters and whats your NO3's before water change ?

Thanks Hai,
forgot to mentioned to you, always check your water parameters.(ammonia,nitrite,nitrate) if they are good don't play as a chemist. leave them alone. and you know how i take out those uneaten foods? i use a very fine nets ( same nets you will use to catch your frys ) and scoop them up same thing on their poop before i do water change.
now keep in mind, as they grow, they will eat more foods so, you will increase that a little and thats when you increase your water changes. as i've mentioned already, i now doing a 20-30% water change and upgraded my filtration also.
and don't forget to take a lots of pics.

Thank you very much Jay,

NO2 at 1.5-2.0 before WC !!!! Thats quite difficult coz your Fronts get to around 6" after a year. However, screening the sand was something I never thought of before, I too could try it maybe once a month. But whats the size difference of my silica sand and pellets - hey are of the same size I believe. But maintaining NO2 at around 2.0 is no joke - gotta be very regular with the sand screening and cleaning all the filters every week. I clean my filters maybe once in 2 or 3 weeks.
