fair enough

The first is a 90 community with, from the top down, african butterfly, golden wonder killis, dwarf neon, yellow, boesmani and turquise rainbows, goldfish, cherry barbs, BN pleco, rubberlip pleco, dojos and kuhlis. I feed this tank the 0.5, 1 and 2 mm foods.

Second is a 45, with pearl gouramis, neon, black neon, orange flame and bloodfin tetras, triple red cockatoos, blood red albino swords and albino, leopard and emerald corys. I feed this tank just the 0.5 mm food.

Last is a 75 african community with congo tetras, spotted ctenopoma, senegal bichir, african knife and an african featherfin. This tank gets just the 2 mm food.

Feeding a high quality food like NLS goes a long way to keeping a tank clean, too. Some foods have more undigestable matter in them than others, and that passes right through the fish.

Yes, I was trying to keep the thread on the topic of NLS. Pellets are far superior to flakes, IMO.

I've kept 50 different species of fish since switching to NLS pellets and only 1 refused to eat it - BGK. I thought I'd have trouble with the butterfly, but there was none.

Some fish do not take to it right away though. If they are used to junk food, they will pass on the NLS hoping to get more of the other. It might take a couple days for them to eat it, but once they do they love it.

there are some high quality flakes. NLS makes a garlic flake - I've used it, the fish liked it.

one thing to keep in mind with the pellets - they sink. If you have gravel, you can end up with a lot of food falling through the cracks, out of reach. I believe there is a semi-floating variety, which stays suspended in the water longer.

Otherwise, the fish will be eating off the bottom. It's an adjustment, but I assure you the fish will go to the food, wherever it is.
