    I have 4 adf's in a community tank, they hand feed really well so no problems there but at the moment the only thing I can find to give them is bloodworm. Is there anything else I could try them on to vary their diet?

    WELCOME to Fishlore!!!

    What size tank? What are the tank mates?

    Shrimp pellets and other types of sinking pellets are great source that contains all the nutrients they need

    Shallow 54 litre with 4 neon tetra, 4 rose tetra and a bristlenose. Had 4 guppies but they were great big bullies!

    Not really, water is fine, everyone healthy, bristlenose may have to go into bigger tank soonish as he is growing fast! Frogs all kanoodling, boys sing most night so can't be too bad but haven't found any other food I can hand feed and fish lightening fast at getting in there first!

    It's not super shallow but more than average, helps frogs get to surface. Has sand Base as gravel nearly killed one froggy

    Bristlenose definetly will need a 20 gallon once it gets 2.5-3 inches. The neon tetra and rose tetra are a schooling fish and need a minimum group of 6. The neons are fine but the rose tetra need a 20 gallon minimum due to their size and their activeness.

    Moving house soon so hopefully will be able to accommodate a bigger tank. Would also like to separate adf's to make feeding easier. Any suggestions on other adf food?

    Brineshrimp, earthworms, night crawlers, and shrimps are other options!

    I have a colony in a species only tank, and they get bloodworms, brine shrimp, krill, daphnia, and pellets (not all on the same day of course).

    Cut in tinny pieces as well!

    Take a look at the care sheet for other food suggestions
