10 discus in that tank easy. I use a variety of dry, frozen and live for my discus. All are generally taken well. I have found that they often will not take pelleted dry though even if premoistened.

Discus can get a little "finiky" depending on what they get used to..my Discus don't touch dry food even if I a try to tease them with it, they just look at it like: a-stone-falling-down"..:)

Of course if one starve them they will eat something at the end ( not the way to go IMHO)

What I do is that I mix the dry food diet and other nutrients into the beefheart mix and they thrive just fine on it.

Well I have been trying just about everything with these guys. They are picking at a little bit of everything but real move for that beefheart. They been in the tank 4 days and all are active. NLS and flake are not there favorite at all.

I think alot of it is how they were raised as babies. My breeder is awesome but my only beef with him is ALL he feeds them is a beef heart blend. Thus when I recieved mine, even the three monthers I got all they will eat is beef heart. They will peck at frozen mysis, but most of that will go to their tankmates who are happy for the treat. They wont touch pelleted food, eat colored and softened discus pellets. I have started adding mysis and pellets into the blend now so maybe eventually they will recognize it. I havent bothered with flake.

Well I decided to make a blend of beefheart to save some money. My breeder used beefheart as his main staple and my little buggers didn't want anything else. Well looks like its frozen for me after all.
