That's your call. Depends on your stock, how much you'll be using, how long you expect it to last, etc.

Do have to feed algae supplements??? I don't, should I? Anywho, I feed Hikari mini cichlid pellets, omega 1 shrimp pellets, blood worms, and just some plain ol' tetra flakes.

Careful with the frozen brine shrimp. My male ram gorged on them and ended up with a really swollen stomach and scales that look like a pineapple. He doesn't have the problem with blood worms though

The algae wafers are for something else but all of my bottom feeders will benefit from it. I was planning on getting a breeding pair of BN Plecos soon once I change my stock up to the way I want it.

I'll probably just go with the 150g bottle as I'm only going to have 4 rams at the most.

I usually add the algae wafers for my bottom feeders but the gbrs love them too. Not sure if it's an necessary part of their diet though.
