  • Krill

    Does anybody ever feed Krill to their FW fish? I was reading that in addition to beneficial Krill oil, feeding krill in a supplementary manner can have some mind blowing color enhancing effects. Plus they just look tasty

    I feed frozen krill to mine :-) my betta Cresendo and the cories love it! I think the snails that get pieces like it as well! Maybe that's why Cresendo is super pink lol

      I don't but Krill is very good for preparing breeders lol. I used to use krill to fatten up my breeders and get them in the 'mood'.

                  Guy at the LFS he fed his albino oscar that all the time and when he was breaking down the tank brought him into the store for the display, I had never seen a PINK oscar before until then...

                  Someone actually offered a sizeable amount of cash for the "rare" fish and the owner sold it as fast as he could lol

                    I feed Krill, high protein. Fish loves it. Just make sure you buy the juvenile and not the adult Krill (huge) or you can slice them up.

                        lol it made me think of what can I feed fish to make some more "rare" species I mean I know what happens when you eat too much broccoli or asparagus, then again red velvet cake has a sometimes similar effect.

                              As expected the fish loved it. I tried just breaking it up with my hands but that only led to a bunch of fish swimming around for half an hour with big chunks of krill in their mouths. It looks like I am actually going to have to add a cutting board and knife to my dedicated fish equipment.
