Tropheus need a spirulina-based diet, but some NLS pellets occaisonally wouldn't hurt.

i second todd... spirulina is gonna be the staple... if you have other cichlids that eat NLS that it wouldnt hurt the duboisi, but i wouldn't go out and buy NLS just for them.

RoK- NLS is a special formula for many fish. it contains ingredients that bring out the fish's colour. amny ppl use it for there cichlids because the colours can be amazing.
