Best food for mostly mbuna mixed tank

Postby howmanyds » Tue Mar 03, 2020 12:31 pm


I used to have a Tang set up but recently switched to mostly Mbuna. I'm trying to find the best food to feed. I've always done NLS pellets with occasional spirulina20 flakes with success.

I have:
20+ mbuna - herbivore
8 haps (blue dolphin and eastern happy) - omnivore
Some tangs (a Julie and a temporalis pair and synos) - omnivore

Everyone swims to the top except the synos and temporalis

Should I combine an herbivorous pellet like Omega Super Color Veggie Kelp with NLS pellets? How often should I give the spirulina flakes?

Any other suggestions?

Just the NLS pellets and nothing else. The spirulina is in the NLS.
