    Hi guys,

    Just wondering what you guys feed your Cards?

    I find a lot of food is too big for them even when I crush it up, they love the frozen brine shrimp I put ni the tank but I want more of a variety for them! my LFS doesn't seem to have a special small tetra food, any advice is welcome

    For me, its not so much a question of which food, just which size NLS Thera+a to feed the fish. ;)
    I use .5mm and a once a week treat of mixture of brine shrimp, mysis,daphnia and bloodwroms.

    Some members run their food through a coffee grinder (or similar) for fry and small-mouthed fish.

    I crum the sinking pellets up very small but then they don't sink! and the guppies are like, get outta here lil tetras, this is our food! they get lots of the shrimp though as I push the cube under the filter spray bar and it explodes in little pieces all over the tank! I can't seem to find that NLS food over here anywhere! I even emailed the manufacturer to find some outlets selling it but got no reply email :(

    Thanks guys! I am going to try ebay!

    I googles it too and couldn't find squat, I also went around a load of pet shops and a good few didn't know about it at all!!

    What NLS food would you suggest for discus and corries? The medium 2mm pellets?

    I don't keep discus but since your is juvenile probably start with the .5mm and as the fish grows you can buy bigger pellets. .5mm is fine for the cories.

    As long as its within reason it doesn't hurt the fish to have to eat a bunch of tiny pellets, its actually less messy that way since the fish doesn't chew them up.

    I found a place in Ireland that does it!! Insole just a heads up I found it is actually cheaper to get the NLS foods from the US rather than the UK for me, maybe the shipping is much better price for you because you live in the UK but you should check it out, a shop called feed-my-fish on the US site had good shipping and food prices
