Lightbulb Good juvi krib food

For a well rounded diet for quarter inch kribs, I thought to get some spirulina. Upon research I found earthworm flake and medicated(metrodiazinole) flake. I kinda like the idea of having medications on hand; in fact I'm not sure I don't want to "dose" new fish from lfs. Anyone knowledgable about earthworm flake? CJD

Newly hatched Brine Shrimp or frozen Brine shrimp would be a better option.

I have never heard of that flake food, but they should not be fed a regular diet of it, they need a variety of foods but not too much fatty stuff. Good quality cichlid flakes and supplements of lettuce, peas, zucchini and carrots should also be included.

Be careful with the fry as well as the parents can potentially eat them unless they are separated.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

AAh Tazman, good to hear from you.. I thought I made you mad. I'll go to frozfen brine shrimp for now then..I'm not having any luck with my brine eggs-they hatch and die almost immediately.(Sounds ridiculous, I know). I don't have the parents..wish I did. Bought these guys online..six of them. And I'm off to get lettuce and carrots. Thank you Tazman. Jim

You didnt make me mad

Sometimes miss posts in the daily grind of work and getting home late. Cut the pieces of veggies up tiny and remove any uneaten pieces after the fish stop eating, it is ok to leave a few pieces in the tank as snack food but remove them if they are still uneaten near lights out time.
