I feed Dainichi Veggie FX baby sinking mixed with NLS cichlid (until the NLS Is gone then I will probably just feed the Dainichi). I only have one tank atm so the cost is not as much of an issue. I was previously diagnosed with MTS and my fiancÚ gave me an ultimatum which forced me to go under treatment for the affliction.

A good measurement is that a fishes stomach is the same size at its eye. That is not very much food!

Oh...well.... they clean up the amount that I feed in about 10-15 seconds. Tops!

But I just still think it may be too fatty.

Anyway, Im going to cut it down. And add some of those cheap green pellets to the mix for fiber/bulk so that they are all getting a nibble at each feeding but not a huge amount og the rich fatty stuff each time.

Thanks!

Those cheap green pellets probably gives you the most bang for the buck for lower fat, higher fiber anywhere compared to any other flake or pellet and...preservative free!

I think I'll wean my fish off flakes - finish off the last half pound and it will be YFS cheap green pellets and Veggie FX, side orders of a little Thera +, repashy and pe Mysis, green peas and sweet potatoes.

That's pretty much the route I'm taking.
I have a bunch of Omega One/NLS and for now I'm just going to add a lb of Green Supreme and a lb of veggie FX and that will cut the fat, up the fiber, and thin down the red NLS influence by re ratioing the food more towards the spirulina side of things.

I plan to feed no more than 10-15% NLS
