Twice a day with NLS. Adults get 1mm cichlid formula and fry get the small fish formula. No other foods used at this point in time.

Usually 1 to 2 times per day. Usually either a 1/2 teaspoon or 1 teaspoon per feeding. The primary food is NLS cichlid but I also throw in NLS H2O wafers along with NLS small fish (or I crush some NLS cichlid to the size of the small fish formula)

The only food that I did not include was the mysis that they may get once a month - but this is too sporadic for me to count. For example, everyone in the house is breeding right now and I just introduced some new mpulungu and petros, so I will not give anyone mysis for several more weeks.

I feed mine twice daily and often an evening treat, My Golden K's get HBH super Veggie with no dyes and NLS for a treat and my Kaisers II get NLS 1 MM only at this point.
