NLS Thera A pellets

Recommended Posts

Feeding NLS Thera a 1m pellets, however it turns water brown, cloudy and stinks! What are other options on brand and size?

Growing 4 to 5 months old Ranchus looking for staple diet of sinking pellets ( won't cause Floaty issues ) and doesn't cloud up water or stink up water.

It's never done that when I feed it.  That's really strange. :idont

Are the ranchus having trouble finding and eating the pellets quickly, or getting them into their mouths?

please advise the following:

 

volume of water

#of fish

filtration

amount that you are feeding

how often you are feeding.

do you have airstones installed?

 

i have a ryukin who unfortunately floats on NLS.

Narrow it down to dirty hydro sponge v had to rinse it 6 times! No other mechanical filtration. Yes over over eating 8 ranchus.

I've never had any of these problems with NLS Thera-A.  Are you pre-soaking it too long?  

 

You could try Hikari Lionhead which sinks immediately without soaking and is good for wen growth.

 

These are the two pellets I feed to my fish.

50g with 8 (3.5 to 4 inch) using hydro sponge V and two k1 fluidized bed containers with crush coral on bottom. One air stone.

Feeding 5 to 6 times day with FBW and NLS Thera ..A.

I thought NLS doesn't cause SWB?

Don't soak and I had bad experience with lion head pellets.

how frequently are you changing the water?

Do keep that sponge clean! I love mine, but they gunk up fast. Not soaking them to the point of mush helps as well. I plain don't soak my dry food except for ONE variety because they waterlog so quickly. Only one likes to float and remain dry, and it needs presoaking.

Every day sometimes every 2 days.

I'm not sure that changing the food will help.  It might just be that with that stocking level and amount of feeding, you have to increase your water changes in either frequency, percent or both and clean the sponge more :idont
