I still haven't fully decided what to use as a staple diet for my two new fish. In years past, I've been a huge fan of Pro-Gold. It always gave my fish excellent growth and seemed to enhance their colors without muddying their white (which is why I took Saki-Hikari out of the rotation -- it gave my white goldfish an orange wash). In fact, I fed Pro-Gold back in the days when it was brand-new and was called Sho-Gold. Yep, been keepin' goldfish a long time, longer than some Koko's members have been alive. Ouch. This time around, I wasn't able to order any Pro-Gold before getting my new fish, so I grabbed a container of New Life Spectrum at the LFS where I bought them. I have to say that I'm pretty happy with it so far. My calico butterfly was showing a predisposition toward floatiness/slight SBD when he first arrived. That appears to be resolved now (yay!). All they've had is the NLS, one serving of peas, and some bloodworms left over from feeding my dwarf puffer. So I probably have to give the New Life Spectrum (and lots of good clean water) credit for the improvement in the butterfly's balance. So I think I'm going to stick with the NLS as their staple food right now. It's working wonderfully, and I don't want to rock the boat. They're almost done with their second round of prazi, and I think it's safe to say that I have a couple of keepers here. Floaty? Me? Not anymore!
Hi everyone, I am looking for a good quality dry food to feed my tropicals (particularly my Angelfish Odette) to help enhance colour and vigour. I currently just feed generic store bought dry food (i.e. Tetra granule stuff) alongside fresh veg and frozen bloodworm/daphnia, but I havent been happy with this for a little while now. My fish are healthy, and while they sometimes look great, other times Odette loses her bright blue "sheen". I think it is diet related (when she has less frozen food and more of the dry food her colours fade). Im starting to make my own gel food and will continue to feed fresh veg and frozen foods, but I also really want to find a good quality granulated/pellet food. I have been hearing some good things about the New Life Spectrum foods and wondered if any of you have tried this brand at all, either the goldfish or tropical varieties, if you have id love to hear from you, as I want to get a feel for the brand-quality (I myself am looking at the community, cichlid and discus preparations they offer). A brief forum search showed a few positive comments about NLS for but id like to hear about it more in depth if possible. If you have used it, did you find it was beneficial for growth/colour/health in your fish? would you recommend it? If not do you have any other suggestions on quality tropical foods (im also looking at Hikari but have heard mixed reviews). I know alot of you either have/do keep large tropicals so any advice would be great :]
