May somebody give me ideas on what to feed striped raphael catfish? I am running out of ideas. I am either feeding it frozen bloodworms, sinking pellets, and sometimes small pieces of dead fishes and krill. Unfortunately, I am not allowed to feed live prey to my fishes by the way.

they will eat anything, and live food is not needed as they are scavengers, eating whatever they find while cruising around the tank. I've had good experience with hikari sinking pellets, but algae wafers are accepted too and some vegetable in the form of green peas.

I am just afraid he is not getting enough nutrients from his diet.

Pellets are packed with enough nutrients. New Life Spectrum Algaemax will ensure it gets enough fiber, and is more superior than the Algae wafer.

AlgaeMax has a wide variety of Green natural plant matter, including Chlorella Algae, Spirulina, Ulva, Wakame Seaweed, Red Seaweed, Kelp, Chondrus Crispus, Spinosum Seaweed, Eucheuma cottonii.

With 9 different green natural foods delivering a wide range of various nutrients promoting health, colouring and providing a variety of nutrients. Rather than a normal herbivore diet containing just a single source like seaweed or kelp.

With a one ingredient green diet will not have all the nutrition needed for healthy herbivores. Your fish require a good range vegetable matter to help give the sources found in the plant diversity in their natural diets which helps to prevent digestive problems for fish.

New Life Spectrum is the complete herbivore nutrition dietary solution for herbivore aquarium fish.
