Colours.

I feed my Cics the Hikari gold pellets which contain a carotenoid which enhances the red hues on the fish. They have a varied diet Beefheart, lettuce, Cichlid flake, various algee pellets and JMC catfish pellets for the diggers. But is there any other colour enhancing feeds you know off ?

Shrimp/prawns/krill bring out reds. If you can find it (cant remember the exact name) but its a flowerhorn pellet which is suppost to have a lot of color enhancers.

Paprika and carrots contain carotene and can serve as color enhancers.

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.

Don't tell me it's for your oscars. Those monsters could practically inhale 2 whole carrots.

Not afraid at it at all. Hold it. Why would I be afraid to a mere picture?
