    what dry food u feed ur fish with?

    Just curious, what brand/type of DRY procssed food (pellets/flakes) do you feed your sw fish with?


    I've been with NLS for awhile... just about to finish the current container (actually I lost 1/3 of it dropping it on the floor ><)..... wondering if I should buy NLS again or if there's another other better ones out there. I've read a couple ppl saying they noticed more waste from feeding NLS, while not saying it's not a good food.

    NLS is New Life Spectrum


    So many choices, hard to decide I was about to buy a container of Ocean Nutrition.... but I was looking athe their "Formular One" and Formular Two"... and had no idea what's the differences and ended up not buying any lol.

    P.E Mysis twice a week and cyclop-eeze(freeze dried) twice a day. Both foods are top notch... the cyclop-eeze is a must IMO.

    I use Omega One Marine Flakes, Omega One VeggiFlakes (primarily spirulina), freeze dried cyclopeeze, and frozen mysis.

    As for schedule everyone eats when I get around to it, some days lots, some days little.

    the protein in the PE mysis is crazy ( in a good way ) and my fish love it but i have never tried the freeze dried cylop-eeze but my fish / corals love the frozen bar.

    but you guys are getting a little off topic, he was looking for processed dry food

    hehe that's ok, still somewhat related

    I do have FD cyclopeeze too. The fish definitely like it. Maybe I should just feed a 100% cyclop-eeze diet and ditch dry processed food all together? The only small complain about cylopeeze is it's of such small particules and floats everywhere... unless I turn off all the pumps which I'm lazy to do

    Zookeeper: if you have the chance to give the frozen cyclop(like a4twenty mentioned)... its even better. The only downfall is its frozen(I tend to forget frozen foods on the counter)... now is this the foods problem or mine? hrrmmm :b3:
