So my choices have grown pretty well. I do Hikari gold daily. I also have frozen bloom worms and brine shrimp I do once every couple weeks. Once a week I add some freeze dried krill and freeze dried meal worms. Question is can I do the freeze dried meal worms and krill more often? Also I read once soaking the krill in a salt mix to fight infection. Should I soak some krill every few weeks just as somewhat of a precaution? If so how do I actually do so at what mix?

too much salt can compromise the health of your fresh water fish fish...
thus when not needed, don't do it... keeping the water pristine and feeding
varied foods will keep your fish healthy!

yes you can... if you have all of those foods, you can drop them in rotation one kind a day.

Twice a year my fish get epsom salt soaked feed for 5 consecutive days, just as a precautionary measure. Frozen food is low in nutrition and mostly moisture. Freeze drieds are far superior. I would be careful with high protein feed for omnivorous cichlids. A weekly treat at most. FD krill is great, a high protein level, but also very high in fiber. High quality pellet is all you need for a staple. A good dose of veg based food in the mix will keep fish healthy. For an additive use Boyd's VitaChem, a liquid vitamin supplement. Works best on the krill.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

I found the vitachem on amazon I wonder if petsmart or petco sell it. Is Hikari vegi based? If not what's the best vegi based pellet.
