  1. What are yall feedin ya kritters these days?

    I have been using Mysis shrimp as more or less a staple food.
    Also give em Cyclops-Eze flakes and freeze dried all my fish go nuts when this stuff hits the water!
    My yellow tang has a slight orange tint to it now from being the biggest hog of the cyclops flakes.
    Formula one / two both frozen and pellets.
    Angle formula.. I don't feed this very often as most of it melts into nothing soon after getting wet.
    Red / brown / green algae sheets a few times a week.... my Niger trigger will nip at the brown but not the other 2
    I toss in chopped shrimp, oyster, fish whenever I happen to be cleaning/cooking it.

    Omega-One marine flakes and some times some Mysis.

    I realy should offer a wider variety, but the fish seem to like what they get and don't complain :lol:

    Yeah. He was the first of my two fish to even try it. I had to soak some with Mysis before the Starcki would even go near it. They both are eating it now.
     
  18. New Life Spectrum & Frozen Brine Shrimp.

    I have 4 peppermint shrimp, 3 of the 4 are females and when she releases her litter, they love it. She must release 10,000 tiny shrimp. They grub on that.

    So I might just take my 10 ga for keeping live brine or mysis shrimp.
