I use three different flake and tablet foods to provide variety, never the same food three days consecutively; some fish might prefer one over another, and the nutrients in each might be different. The protein on the flake foods are within the 45-50% range, and the tablets are within 30-45% range and one is a veggie (algae, spirulina) for the vegetarians (farlowella, whiptail).
I agree. Problems with excessive protein usually come from feeding too much live blackworms or earthworms.
