Pretty sure I thought what I was feeding was good, but now I'm sure it's not. Plus, he needs some variety.

Mine gets 4.5mm floating NLS, Dainichi Color Supreme medium floating, NorthFin floating Tropical sticks and freeze dried krill. He will also eat an occasional Omega One algae wafer intended for the pleco.

For treats I use frozen krill, frozen silversides, earthworms, nightcrawlers, sand shrimp.

Hikari Cichlid Gold large pellets, Aqueon Algae Rounds with a couple drops of Boyd's vitachem, and freeze-dried jumbo krill with several drops of Boyd's vitachem. I use to feed him crickets instead of krill, but I haven't bought any crickets in a couple months. I've never tried fresh fruits or vegetables but keep meaning to do so.

It all depends on what is available to you and the budget you have for food. For just a bit more you could at least step it up to something like Hikari Gold which would be a better food. If food cost is not a big deal then NLS would be a great staple food.

I tried chickpeas, he hated them. I do give him FD Krill, apples, and bananas. I have NLS cichlid formula, but he won't eat it. It's not really about cost, I just know he'll eat the tetra. I occasionally try the NLS, it's what I feed my Africans
