Really, I feed anything that isn't slimey that I have. Some of the food in my freezer:

HBH veggie no dies
Kens tropheus flake
nls
kens tropical flake with naturose
Mysis
NLS h2o waffers


I mix it up and they breed constantly

Flake is what I probably feed the most of though.

I have only hade mine for 3 weeks but the food i give them is...

OSI spirulina flakes mixed with 50% Tropical supervit so far. My plans are to change to Hikari Cichlid excel when they are a little bigger.

There is about 100 fishes totaly and so far all good... i hold my thumbs =) I dont want them to get bloat.

i've bought into the nls and i'm really happy with the results. i hit them twice a day with the nls cichlid formula but if i get home from work early enough it's hard not to squeeze in another small feeding. my kazumba fry get the small fish formula 3 times a day for now.

I'm glad to hear your fish are doing better, I have been feeding HBH Veggie with no dye to my Kazumba's for 2+ years with no problems!!

With the HBH Veggie flakes what was your feeding schedule?...Did you lose any fish?

Please vote above regarding how you feed your Trophs, and then tell us what you voted for, describe your feeding routine... and why. [/b]

I have Black Ikola Kaisers, no small juvies, they are 3 inches big. I feed goldfish flakes, which are low in protein, and spirula and a small chunk of frozen brine shrimp, but not all of these at the same time. If I feed the brine shrimp, they will get a smaller feeding and no flakes, but maybe vege's. I feel morning and night, cause I work all day. My Troph's are not alone, but are with other Malawi's who don't allow them to 'pig' out like they want to. I havn't had any bloat on me yet and I've been keeping them for about 6 months now. I don't know why so many people have so much problems? Are they over feeding them? Discus are like that too and will bloat, they are a $$ lesson also.

Feed twice a day on weekdays and 3 times on weekends. Feed Veggie FX or Veggie Deluxe and every other day NLS. Some small size, but mostly baby or 1mm size. Once a week, Homemade green peas, shrimp, spirulina mix. Tropheus will take it right out of my hand. Awesome
