Food Questions?

There are so many answers to this question on the Internet but this forum has not steered me wrong yet so I'm curious what you feed your fish? Flakes or pellets or something else? What brands? Do you feed different fish different things? Thanks in advance for answering! 😃

Depends on the type of fish. I feed my rainbowfish, kribensis, rams, and tetras flakes, pellets, and bloodworms.

NLS then omega in pellet form. Omega flakes for smaller like neons. Then I mix it up for treat's shrimp and blood worms. Lyonsi gets some veggies with createen for his color.

I use kens flakes, regular tetra tropical flakes, cichilid pellets and bloodworms. Honestly everyone gets a bit of each at this point. Then veggies as well

My panda corys need more veggies in their diet. I bet they will love them, because they won't eat fresh veggies.

How often would you feed these to your corys?

Are you talking about the veggie sticks? I have never purchased those before . But they get a combination of both frozen food and sinking pellets once daily.

Fluval, nutrafin max and hikari(doesn't tend to change the colour of your water) are your best brands
