Feeder Fish

I have been feeding my birchir and Indonesia Tiger with feeder fish for some time, Just want to ask you guys here whether which feeder have the highest in protein? That will be a nutrious meal for my fishes eg, Molly, guppies, catfish , gold fish etc..

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

You should try to get your bichir and indo on prepared foods as they are cheeper and much better for your fish. Indos are very easy to get on prepared foods. I feed all my bichirs and datnoids all kinds of worms, shrimp, cut up tilapia, squid, and pellets.

What species is your bichir? how big is the indo?

I feed mine on white bait from the supermarket. Don't know the nutrional value, but have never had a problem with it. Just defrost the 30 mins before feeding.

sardines are bad for your water as they are very oily. Tilapia should be at most supermarkets and is very cheep and good for fish to eat. You can also buy frozen prawns (with out salt). Your dats will come out of hiding for food after not too long with out eating. Worst i ever had was 3 weeks with a thin bar. He begs for shrimp now.

I was referring to Daz's sardines though I never planned to use sardines at all.
