My Africans eat veggie flakes, lettuce, and zucchinI as their regular diet. I also have some frozen brine shrimp, but I'm unsure as to how often they should be fed protein foods. Any advice would be much apprieciated.

When I kept Africans, I gave them protein in the form of shrimp and bloodworms, just once or twice a week. I'm not sure what others do, but that seemed to work for me

Good morning,

Same here for all of my fish. They get protein treats (Blood worms and Krill) every 5 days in addition to their staple dry foods and veggies.
