    It was recommended to me as a flavor by my LFS. I feed a varied diet and the fresh veggies weren't going over very well. Once I soaked them, the fish went nuts. I never tried it on any of the dry foods as the fish never needed encouragement to eat it.


    Feeding schedule:
    Mon: Granules (Tetramin) or Tubifex worms (Omega) or Frozen beef hearts (San Francisco Bay Brand)
    Tues: Flakes (Tetramin) or Shrimp Pellets (Omega) or Dried Krill (Omega)
    Wed: Shrimp (Tetramin) or Algae pellets (Omega)
    Thurs: Dried Bloodworms (Omega) or Egg Yolks
    Fri: Micro Pellets (Hikari) or Frozen Brine Shrimp (Hikari)
    Sat: Veggies or frozen bloodworms (San Francisco Bay Brand)
    Sun: No food

    That was recommended to me at the store where I get my fish. I eat a varied diet, so why shouldn't the fish? Skipping a day doesn't seem to bother the fish any, so that doesn't seem like a bad thing.

    Precisely....I need to incorporate a fasting day into my schedule, too...I may have to give that Garlic Guard a try, my fish don't seem to devour their fresh veggies like they used to

    It also works well for the snails when I throw in a carrot.

    It's hard to imagine that they will like them better, they absolutely destroy fdbw on the days that I feed them. But if it's better for their health I will definitely try them soaked.

    Will they lose any nutrients if they are soaked for a couple of hours? I feed FD bloodworms to my surface eaters.

    Good question. I hadn't considered that.
