I haven't, but a friend has been using it on his colonies and is satisfied with it.

New Era African Green is probably one of the best food's available for trophs.But you would need to feed along side a Veggie and spirulina flake.Keeping to a nice mixed varied diet.

Just don't feed you Troph's the same constant flake(spirulina) and brand.

Very good diet there. Similar to what I use.

Tropical -36% super forte flake but also Granular sometimes 50%
- 6% spirulina 25%
- malawi 25%
(all mixed as one main feed)

New Era African Green

Tetra Crisp -Multi
-Veg

Then some frozen now again.

A friend who owns a local store gave me a container of the Algal Pellets he received from the company rep as a sample.

I fed it to my colony and some took it and some spit it out. The pellet has an unusual pliable texture, is rather dense and sinks slowly. I also fed it to my clown loaches and they went nuts for it. I will attempt feeding it to the colony again.

The container does not have any nutritional info nor could I find any stats from the web, so I'm unsure as to the protein content.

As an aside, my fish have never reacted to any other food they way they react to NLS Thera-A pellets.

Regards,
-Gary

Think that tub you have is more along the veggie line. The protein content might just be from plant protein. You can email the company and request the information.
