    Angel Formula

    I've recently been feeding mish fish with angel formula frozen fish food, along with other foods. I only have one angel, and I want her to eat angel formula, but the other fish get some of it too. Is this bad? Will the other (non-angels) fish benefit from eating the angel formula or will it hurt them? I also feed frozen brine, and formula one flake food. Thanks

    No it's not going to hurt your other fish. I have no angels and I feed it to my fish.
    I feed 4-5 different foods each one a different day, some days it's just flakes.

    The Angel formula is just as good for other fish as it is for angels. That formula just has more sponge mixed in it that angels require in their diets.
    I feed a LARGE assortment of foods as well, close to 12 different foods that I interchange nightly, Angel formula being one of them.

    I will go to say that brine shrimp is not very healthy though, and should only be used to coax finicky fish into eating other foods mixed with it. I would suggest trying mysis shrimp in place of the brine you're feeding now. I feed mysis nightly, mixed with one of the other foods. It's part of their staple diet.

    any of those "formulas" is really just guideline sake... i mean, brineshrimp is salt water but we feed it to fresh water fish too right?

    think of it this way...
