No idea but that's a cool video. Very messy fish but clean tank.

I know BGK's like beef heart......maybe that's it but ground up?

I'd love ot get one of these but in a 4x2x2 with a lot of smaller fish i think it would have too much live food.

I know What it is :)

I found out from the owner the black ghost knife in the video is eating frozen "Beefheart"

I'll have to try that sometime... I've never seen where you can buy it...

You can get beef heart cubes like you get brine shrimp cubes. I would buy a beef heart from the local butcher and grind it up, then freeze it. They are cheap and it will last a very long time.

it should be noted, a good portion of people say not to feed fish beefheart often, as mamalian proteins can screw up fish.

like mad cow i suppose, mammals have too many amino acids of something
