We actually don't carry the massivore pellets in my store, so the employee discount doesn't even matter. haha But I try to ration him to about six or less pellets a day. And thanks for the tip on freshness, I think I'll start refrigerating them.

55 gallon
Paracheirodon innesi - neon tetras
Pantodon buchholzi - African butterfly fish
Hoplosternum littorale - hoplo catfish
Erpetoichtys calabaricus - ropefish
??? - spiny eel
Bunocephalus cf. coracoideus - banjo catfish

Pomacea bridgesii - apple snail

Also remember that large mature fish don't need to eat every single day. You can feed every other day if you like or go a couple days each week without feeding.

"responsible fish keeper?... Didn't know there was any other kind"

I am not retarded I just can't spell

I have three jack dempseys that are healthy and I feed them hikara frozen bloodworms and brineshrimp and they really like it. I would feed them hikara foods.

I love Hikari products too. They've always seemed to be pretty darn good. =)
