All my trophs eat 1mm NLS cichlid formula Started feeding it to 1/2" - 3/4" Bembas. No issues. I feed my adult trophs 2 and 3 mm. That is it. Never had bloat. Knock on formica.

I also feed NLS 1 mm cichlid pellets to newly released Duboisi fry. They pick at the pellets until eventually the pellets have disappeared.
