I feed them different kinds of food like shrimps, mussels, smelt and krill.
They also get dry food Aquatic Nature, Tetra Cichlid and brown granulate.

You my friend, have acquired my "Dream Tank".

Simply because i can't find those species around here at that size. And i'm too lazy to wait 1-2 years for juvies to grow.

Thanks, I like to see the young ones grow up in my other tanks also.
And then you have the possibility for selection.
