Just a small update. All fish are eating northfins cichlid and krill 3mm pellets. Put in my runt pinima with them to put some size on him. I am honestly super happy with this group. Surprising that the kels growth rate so far is similar to a kelberi. I feed them 2-3 times a day sometimes skipping a day or two during the week. Only noticeable difference is you see some shinny gold areas along the xingus lateral line and spangling in the kels dorsal fins. Will update next month.

had got 3 more pinima and more xingu and kelberis. Just glad to get these kelberis on pellets because they can be so hard headed to train lol
that’s for sure - it’s been a struggle getting my two to eat tilapia and not only krill -

the new class (10 juvi ) will never know blood worms... only pellets 🤣

i’d like to get some fancy kelberi from Wes.... $350 ea... pricey though and my two chinese farmie kel’s would be jelly 😂
