    Default Good Bolivian Ram food


    0 Not allowed!
    Currently I feed my Bolivian Rams a combination of flakes, bloodworms and Spectrum Thera sinking pellets.

    They get bloodworms 2-3 times a week and seem to really enjoy them.

    The flakes are whatever the Rasboras don't eat after they float to the bottom.

    The Spectrum Thera pellets are incredibly messy and the Rams don't seem to go for them. I leave a small amount of it out on a flat rock and it just sits there and decomposes.

    They also graze on things in my tank - the occasional dead snail goop from my snail purges, and they seem to like cleaning mulm out of my flame moss.

    What can I add to supplement their diet?

    I would drop the bloodworms back to once a week for starters. Bloodworms can sometimes be pretty hard for a a lot of smaller fish to digest in large quantities. Some kind of spirulina flake or even better would be the Hikari Cichlid Excel mini pellets would be a great addition. As bignellm and Scotti have suggested, shelled and softened peas are great, brineshrimp is pretty good. You can also give them some softened zuchini and broccoli. A slice of apple or pear is always good to offer them as well. Mine were also eating the Hikari Cichlid Gold pellets (crushed up).
    Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

    Will the Hikari Cichlid Gold pellets sink? My Rams feed almost exclusively from the bottom of the tank.

    Yep, they sure do! You will have to crush them up a little too. They can be a bit big for the Rams.
