I am curious as to what everyone is feeding their bristlenose adults/fry.


I am currently feeding unsalted canned green beans, this is constantly available to them. Also I feed bloodworms 2 times a week.

I am doing 50% water changed 3-4 times a week and they live in a 40g breeder.

I have about 10-20 fry, about .75" long and close to 3 months old.

I feel that they're growing slower than they should, I wonder if it is my diet?

I tried feeding them Kelp Waffers from Northfin, but I find I lose fry a day or two after feeding them this, so I stopped and haven't lost any since.



Is there anything you would recommend I add to their diet to increase growth rate?


I have tried blanched zucinni, kale, spinnach and sweet potato but they really don't seem to care for it. The beans get devoured in hours!

They love blanched snow peas.

I feed what your feeding plus I use catfish pellets from kens fish and angelfins.ca sells them too. They consist of veggies too.
