What should I feed honey gourami?

Morayeel

I am soon going to get some honey gourami. I am planning on feeding a base diet of flake food, I will also feed vegetables and frozen foods. How often should I feed vegetables or frozen food? What vegetables and what frozen foods should I feed? What should I look for in the flake food? How much protein and vegetable matter should be in the flake food?

Frozen foods i typically feed once or twice a week. Same with veggies. I think about any flake or pellet should do, especially if omnivores.

Hi, avoid vegetables it's not necessary in Gourami diets that naturally would consist of insect protein. The fact that some are quite notorious for eating floating plants would suggest that some plant matter is good for them but that should be covered in flake food.

Agreed here, look for this or insect based flake food.

Feed frozen as much or as little as you want. Avoid feeding blood worms too often but daphnia is a good one that shouldn't cause issues feeding several times a week(or more).

Mine like frozen baby brine shrimp. Otherwise I feed them daphnia, spiraluna and bug bites.

Bug bites small pellets are a favorite for my gouramis! I also have a krill-based flake and spirulina flake I rotate in their diets. Occasionally I'll make Repashy Grub Pie and feed them frozen daphnia, which they slurp up.

Do you drop in a chunk frozen or thaw it first?

I just throw it in. It thaws so fast in the water.
