Strange for sure, for all of them to hunger strike. Sounds like a barometric shift. Not alarming though. Got any weather shifts coming?

Yeah, that must be it- got a huge rainfall today. But all the babies are continuing to pig out so that's good. They all look fine otherwise. If it keeps up I'll start to worry but for now I'll try to relax, emphasis on "try"

Everyone is eating again this morning, fish gods must have accepted my plea... hail poseidon!

More angelfish wigglers! Fairly small batch, and a lot of dead eggs, so I'm going to let Ron and Valerie keep their next batch of fry for sure and try to pamper them a little more.

Rams look like they might spawn again!

Great to hear that!

sounds like you need to take advantage of the Petco $1 per gallon sale

Sorry I'm a MTS promoter, hahaha!

I don't think so, not here at least. There's a $40 10 gallon kit which is the sort of thing I'd normally be all over but we're running out of space to put tanks. We're gonna replace our bins with 10 gallon tanks, get a new 10 gallon to replace the quarantine tank that leaked, and then put the 40 breeders on a double stand in the only chunk of fish tank real estate left... At least until Collin is old enough to be trusted with his own tanks in his room

Well we can't get the tanks until we save a little more, or until we get some fish big enough to sell, either way probably another month at least. Hopefully $/gallon lasts that long!

Ok, I've narrowed it down to these options for a new flake food:

Angelfish Flake Food
Ken's Premium Angel Fish Flake

Thoughts? ANy other suggestions?

I'd go for Premium. Ken sounds like he knows what he's doing

IIRC, Poppa, bandit, or Andy use Ken's food. Maybe pop into Mr Sager's wiggler thread and ask him if he is familiar with the first one you listed there.

Yeah Ken's great and cheap. I got a variety of pellets from him, 1-1.5 mm is the perfect size in case your wondering.

My angelfish have a strong preference for flakes it seems? I have NLS pellets but they seem to eat flakes much more vigorously, which is why I'm looking for a high quality flake for the angelfish in particular.

Maybe your pellets are expired....

I had that happen to me once, and as soon as I bought a new kind they all started eating it again. Cory catfish, danios, skirt tetras still ate it but the other fish didn't...

My angels eat all sizes of pellets really are pigs!

How many angelfish fry batches do you have?

Do the Rams eat the nls pellets?

My angels seem to prefer flakes against pellets when I had tetra flakes they'd go straight for ten instead of the hikari pellets
