The french angel was not suffering because the brine lacked nutrition, it suffered because like many fish, it's system has been evolved to handle plant form foods like the various algae
Agreed, it was suffering from general malnutrition. I am quite aware of proper nutrition for an Angel, mine is quite fat and sassy.
There have been other fish placed in his care before with a similar problem and they were not all Angels.
Like I stated I agree that it may be OK to start with (as a last resort IMO
) for a fish that refuses any other foods. I agree that is beats starving the fish. I just disagree that it should advised as the first course of action with all the available food products out there now.
I gues we can agree to disagree in regards to this subject.
