It's summer - mow some lawns :)

There are also 150g and 75g containers, but they are $15 and $12 respectively - you are way better off getting the 300g.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

Just want to say, I'm 17 and currently jobless (give me a break- doing summer school and an unpayed work placement right now). I've been dashing around the house selling things on kijiji for my money (craigslist in America). Don't know if that's a possibility, most teens have a lot of junk though. My parents let me sell things like our old furniture, tvs, and satellites as long as I take the time to do the photos and put the ad up myself.
Fast money.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

we dont really have old stuff to sell. anyway what new life spectrum should i feed and how long will the ones at petco last my fish? i would be feeding angelfish, cherry barbs, syno petricola, cpds, pygmy corys, endlers, swordtails, rams, killifish, some cichlids also. i may just save up and buy the larger quantity.

Thera A is my preferred formula. It has more garlic than the others. Of course how long it lasts will depend on how much you feed. I would expect the 300g to last at least 3 months, maybe as long as 6 if the fish are still small.

Sorry to hijack, but i will be going to pick up some NLS, and I was wondering what type to buy?
My fish are guppies, cherry barbs, betta, RN pleco and BN pleco.
Im assuming ill need two different type of food, one for the plecos and one for everyone else.
Would this one be a good size/type?
New Life Spectrum Thera-A Regular Formula 1mm Sinking Pellet Fish Food at PETCO
or this one
New Life Spectrum Small Fish Formula .5mm Sinking Pellet Fish Food at PETCO

And how about this one for the plecos?
New Life Spectrum H20 Stable Wafers 1/2 Inch Sinking Wafer Fish Food at PETCO
I would still give zucchini, though should i still supplement with other algea wafers? or is there enough in nls?

The 0.5 mm is good for small fish, as small as guppy fry. 1 mm is good for most adult smaller community fish, like what you have. 2 mm is good for larger community fish.

My plecos eat the 2 mm pellets.

125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
