At least once a week is a day of fasting instead where the fish do not get food!
Every now and then the fish get too Freeze Dried Artemia they adore (approx 3 times a week)
On days where I feed the animals get in the morning and evening feed!
My main food consists of Tanganyika Tropical Flakes (krill and squid) and is always mixed with alternating foods:

- Tropical Spirulina Super Forte 36%
- Tropical D-Allio Plus (garlic good for the digestive tract)
- Tropical Omnivore pellet
- Tropical Cichlid Color

Mixed is in proportion 3 parts Tanganyika flakes and 2 parts change chuck!

Also frozen food which I myself producing, getting the animals from time to time. Mostly this is
from shrimp which I already prefabricated stocked in the freezer! The shrimp are chopped into small pieces and then mixed with even small amounts of cucumbers and peppers and in special shapes
then frozen!

Thus, I hope the fish a varied, healthy and delicious menu to showcase!
