For grow out we use a high protien pellet food over 36% any angelfish or discus food will work and we are now using a tadpole food for fry. they grow fast and food is cheap in 5lb and larger size. We do not use micro worms because of fin issues when we used micro worms and
HM and CT seemed to suffer from them. BB are better we think as far as grow out compared to loss. You will still get some loss with bb but the end result will be better. You should not feed only one type of food. Try to very your fish diet as much as you can for show quality fish. deep water is a must for good fin production and clean water is also a must.
We like to add some B vitamins to the water and also some C and D. D is needed and something overlooked some time. Remember to keep you food ash level as low as you can get. We like to give some live gut loaded food from time to time on our more hard to keep beta's just to keep them in good shape. But we only use pellets on our sale fish. Pellets are the way to go if your fish gets used to them they will go nuts for them and get fat quick. We some times go 2 or 3 days between feeding on adult fish to keep them feeding heavy. We feed 3 times a day. We feed our fry 5 times a day. We do use bb and now a frog food. We might go to only frog food if the size is good on the 20 test batches we have going now. But micro worms are not a good bet for us. Let me know what worked good for you. this is always a fun topic in Thailand to see wha
t the new food is....It changes like under ware.......uhhhhhhh
