Feeding Electric yellows

Recommended Posts

i feed mine frozen brine shrimp, blood worms, live brine shrimp, discus dinner, beef heart (frozen), zuccini (for the bn but the yellows eat them as well, some mango based colour food thats from the lfs and once every few days flakes. I get spawns from my yellows about every 2 weeks from my colony. Lovely deep yellow colour. It costs a bit to get all the frozen foods but you dont need to feed them much. Though i use store credit to buy all that, but the fry should cover most of them once your fish start to breed. I have noticed my spawns are alot bigger when you feed a nice variety that gives the fish all the nutrients they need.

NLS (New Life Spectrum) - A bit dearer then the other brands out there but my african's love it and their colours are amazing!!!
Cichlid Formula

That's absolutely right but I feed my with some others food as well, veggie pellet, spirulina flake and NLS.

Squashing some peas is also a good feed for them, but do not feed the skin/shell.

This is also not used as a staple but 1 or 2 times a week is fine.

I sometime feed my with some chopped up lettuce, they love it.
