    NLS is great. Does he like floating or sinking pellets?

    NLS vs Hikari
    easy for me Hikari
    i have tried both
    and my jaguar prefers hikari anyday!
    if you really want healthy fish dump the bio gold
    and go for MASSIVORE small pellets
    trust me nothing brings out amazing colors like massivore

    I love Massivore but I don't buy the small pellets, I'll just break up the big ones if I need smaller bites.

    NLS has a much better nutritional profile.

    I have tried both. I say mix them, but my fish have descided Hikari. They spit out the NLS pellets aswell as the greed Hikari Stapple pellets. Its funny how well they can tell the difference.:screwy: As for next time for me, NLS and Hikari Staple are out.:grinno:

    I Use 4 different types of Hikari, Wardley, Aquea cichlid sticks, tetra, and wardley. They also like abit of Omega One flakes. I also mix krill aswell as treating them with live Crickets. Going to do some ghost shrimp too. If they don't eat them atleast I will have cleaners getting the extra food.

    My jag wont touch Hikari Gold floating pellets or NLS flakes yet. But he loves Tetra Cichlid Crisps. I guess my jag has cheap taste. I am wondering if I should let him starve for a few days and then try the Hikari again, or just keep letting him eat what he likes. My RD will eat anything. Including your finger if it gets too close.

    i might get some massivore pellets, my motagunese is about 4 inches now, so the pellets cant be too big cuz he just spits em out if theyre too big.. ive been feeding him hikari cichlid gold mini pellets and he loves em, I just heard that bio-gold and nls bring out more color and now i kno massivore does too.. I think i mite go ahead and buy all three and see what he prefers

    I'd try both. I find that variety is always good if you're using good food. Massivore is awesome for beefing fish up though.
