The brand isn't important in this case becouse both are good qualety foods. I feed my eartheaters (till recent Brasiliensis Bahia Red and present Guianacara) as base tetra wafer mix witch contains algae wafers and meat wafers (normally food for pleco's and corydoras). They love both of them. Most eartheaters also love blanched zucchini (courgette). This contains a lot of vitamins. I take a slice, blanch it (only 2 minutes in boiling water) and cut it in small pieces they can easily swallow. The first couple of times they don't feed much on it but once they are used to the taste they love it. If Satanoperce realy can't handle protein rich foods you should not be feeding krill, mussels and cockles becouse they do have a large amount of proteins. Artemis and white mosquito midgets would be a better choice imo. I expect that Hickari discus pellets also be good food for the Satanoperca. It contains a lot of additional vitamins,....thats why it is so smelly :wink:Would you recommend NLS over Hikari? Don't think I've seen NLS in shops here, though obviously I could order it.
What is the reason for that? They can handle the small disc's easley.My plan was to mix the cichlid pellets with algae disks, stick the whole lot in the morter and pestle and break it down a bit.
Aah OK, sounds reasonable! They can't handle the large size discs thats for sure.I think perhaps I have only the larger discs. Also I like to break up the food so its easier to sift and spreads around the tank more. Reduces squabbles at meal times.
