Question NEW ERA FOOD - share your experience please

Hi

New food brand has come to Australia and as I read in this forum, the NEW ERA brand is well known in UK.

I am using sera flora and NLS Thera A atm. plus growth for the fry.
The NLS has been very good from my experience but the thing that I dislike is the red color stuff that you get when you clean the filter wool.

I am thinking introduce this food to my trophs colony.
In my understanding, I can use the Aegis and the green cichlid type for tropheus but the grazing donut look alike for freshwater also looks very interesting.

Cost wise is pretty similar with NLS, might be a little bit cheaper from my local store.

I need help for other tropheus keeper that has using this food please.

If you dont mind sharing your experience, please share

1. what type are you using
2. how much and how many times daily
3. Other food that you feed to your tropheus tank
4. other info that you experience after using the New Era.


Thanks
G

I know Agel that New Era Mini Grazers are dominantly for marine fishes.
But saw many clips on youtube, that Mbuna cichlids eat these grazers.
Do you think, that they can harm trophs somehow?

Hello buba,


The great problem of the marine algae, it is the great quantity of iodine that it contains. An excess of iodine, it is not good!.

Yeah, my Moliros go after it hardcore. So do my Trewavasae.

Luis, if you want I can look into a group buy of the grazers as well. Maybe in a couple of weeks after all our fish settle down.
