Soo freeze dried is the best way to go? Why is freeze dried better then frozen? I am done with the frozen beefheart. It is messy and nothing in my tank would eat it. LoL I need to find a pellet small enough for them also something that probably sinks instead of floats for my gbrs. They don't usually come up to the top to eat. This weekend I am going to go to the different pet stores in my area.

I actually prefer to feed the frozen although I do have some freeze dried stuff. The fish seem to prefer the frozen more too. The FD I think should be pre-soaked to prevent the fish from bloating up too much.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

You can get beefheart flakes online-Ken's is one brand. it's the best food around IME. I have been feeding Ken's beefheart and spirulina flakes. Spirulina is a great anti-oxidant. It really enhances the blue/green coloring of my angels. I also feed the Ken's color enhancing bits.

Thanks for the info. I have been looking for some spirulina the last couple of days with no luck.
I did manage to find some smaller pellets to that the Angels could eat. LoL the store was only 2 hours away I got the only two bags they had so hopefully they will get bigger before I run out. I don't/can't really drive that far just for food. On a different note I found a really AWESOME fish store. I will definitely have to go back one day just look around. I didn't have time other then just run in and get the food and take a quick look. As I had my wife daughter and my 15 week old puppy in the car. LoL I will continue to look for some spirulina. I do have a question. If the Angels are picking at the algae in my tank is spirulina really needed since its just another type of algae?

not really sure what the nutritional value of the tank algae is. mine do the same thing. i'm sure they are getting what they need from all you are feeding.
On an odd note, I was feeding my pleco some zucchini with some peach stuffed in the middle and the peach got loose and was floating around the tank, getting blown around by my filter output. My angels chased that thing and pecked at it for an hour before I finally took it out. It was like a game for them.
