Man. Did he have to put the sad music trace on the vid of the final breath of his fish? So dramatic!

All of my fish are getting herbivore diets with nls as the staple. But I think the key is probably to under feed

The pearsei was the dominant cichlid, and the comments about changing the diet from high protein once a day would leave me to believe that the fish was overfed (due to rich content) and became stressed out, which led to fish bloat. The high protein was not the direct cause, but more of fishkeeper error of feeding too much in a sitting for that particular fish. It didn't help that the dominant cichlid was the pearsei, and I think all the cichlds were in a 6 foot tank. Being a dominant cichlid would give it a higher stress level than fish in the middle of the hierarchy.

Thanks allot rock. Bloat and IP are always my biggest fears. Can I go back to every other day feedings even for the small guys ? The staple is going to be a plant based pellet. Im really trying to get all of them on algae max but getting some resistance. Second choice would be oo kelp pellets. I mean I seriously worry about bloat and ip more than anything

If you can get them on algaemax, you could feed once a day everyday for the first year easily with no issues.

What was the pearsei eating on the first day?
