    Fish food

    I would like to give fish food to my dews. I am wondering if there is a certain kind I should use or just the tetra food I already have on hand?
    Best regards,
    Charlie

    I usually just give them beta pellets. The leaves curl around them nicely .

    I use fish food that is high in protein. For example, Omega One dried blood worms are 55% crude protein based on the label. I would test out the fish food you have on hand and see how your dews respond. It is fun to me to use the trial and error approach and learn from what happens in my growing conditions.

    From my experience, dryed blood worm is the best you can use because it contain no additive.

    Take a look at this page wrote by a unknown Francois...

    Could I just simply put a whole freeze dried blood worm on a leaf and call it a day? I have a whole bottle of them going to waste under my aquarium. I stopped feeding them to my fish because they didn't like them

    Blood worm are fine, but I would suggest thawing them out first as you might burn the leaf if its to cold, but yes blood worms are fine to use
