How often should I feed my 3 inch Senegal Bichir Beefheart? I really want to boost his growth so I bought the cubes from a local fish store.
Gotcha, if you want him to grow faster you could have the temp slightly warmer too. Warm temp=higher metabolism=faster growth, but a possibly shorter life. That's up to youFishbro5 said:I chose Beefheart because it apparently boosts fish growth.
I've fed mine black or blood worms every other day, they really do grow slowly at first. Also that's exactly why I prefer worms, less fat, smaller portionsFishbro5 said:I also heard that it should not be fed every other day/daily because of the high protein and fat that will deteriorate the Bichir's health over time.
Alright maybe that will just be a once a month treat, I feed my bichir brine shrimp but it takes him forever to find barely any so is it a good idea to just go with full raw shrimp? I also feed Tilapia and HikarI Carnivore.NeonRasta said:
I usually take the tails off the raw shrimp and its perfectly safe I actually learned it from the king of DIY on YouTube. I feed my large south American cichlids raw shrimp maybe once a month as a treat and frozen blood worms maybe once a week. I mainly feed different types of pellets and vegetables for my omnivores.Fishbro5 said:
