Nice Danny!

Yes Whole is quite a bit better than Meal and especially by product.

Whole has water, flesh and bones in it.
Meal has the Meat only with water remove (dehydrated) and
By Product is made up of the garbage scrap from the cutting of the said meat as well as some nasty additives for color, flavor and preservatives.

Hikari Cichlid Excel is most popular in S.Korea. I feed mine E2~3X a day with Excel 50% and Tropical Spilurina Flake 30% and Tetra Bits 20%. I tried NLS only to find my tros don't like it. This is same to other tro keepers in Korea and I don't know why.

I am a newbie when it comes to tropheus, and am welcome to suggestions to modify what I am doing. I am currently feeding Dainichi veggie fx (baby size) 2x a day, what they can eat in 1 minute

This is good to hear as I have been gradually introducing the Dainichi Veggie FX baby sinking pellets to our medium-size Trophs and they absolutely love it. I'm impressed it has an Illangi on the front and per marinedepot.com it's the only product on the market I'm aware of that even mentions the word bloat, much less claims to nearly completely prevent it from happening.

Are there any other online retailers that carry this stuff? I like marinedepot but it takes at least a week to get product shipped, and they're more geared towards salt/marine.

I just ordered some of the veggie deluxe dainichi baby off of Amazon.com. They also had the dainichi veggie fx for babies. If you are a prime member you could have it in a couple of days http://www.amazon.com/Aquatic-Suppli...i+cichlid+food

I found a product that has surprised me of late, Omega One Super Color VEGGIE Kelp Pellets. This stuff is amazing. Don't have scientific research on this but both of my tanks started to breed after 2 weeks of this stuff, coincidence? Maybe, maybe not.

It's the fat calories that does it.
