I'm old fashion I feed a high quality spirulina flake only and it hasn't done me wrong. So I cannot comment on any of the other foods you have mentioned.
When I bought my tropheus back in May I got a 5lb sealed bag of flake from the guy and I am still feeding from that bag. When the time comes for needing more I can either buy it online or get it from members of my local Cichlid club.
I am sure members from your local clubs have the hookup on high quality spirulina and nls 1mm cichlid formula. As well as on fish.
Well, if your going to spend the money for wild caught trophs, then I honestly would suggest a bigger space for them. Especially since ten is a difficult number to keep in the first place. Trophs are best kept in a large colony, it spreads the aggression out. You may find that with only ten that they play odd-man-out and eliminate the weakest link. I know that this post will get many replies of people saying that ten is enough, but it really depends on the colony. Just let me ask you this: If your paying $500.00 for a group of trophs do you really want to gamble? The more the better with trophs and I would have to suggest more. More fish and more space. Sorry, but that how the trophs play it.

Thanks for the advise!! I have done a lot of reading and I believe most will agree with you. I guess I'll have to play it the tropheus way
