    What are the preferred brands of algae and seaweed for the Pseudotropheus demasoni? There are a lot of brands out there, some for just marine fish, and I thought those of you who own demasonis would know.

    Is there anything else you would add to a diet of veg. based flakes with spirulina, dried seaweed and algae?

    thanks,

    NLS algaemax would be the best 1mm pellet food out there for him since it contains 4 different kind of algae, kelp, and spirulina. If you have Asian stores nearby just purchase some dried seaweed called Nori, no other ingredient, and much cheaper in bulk.

    You could also grow green algae in rocks by just them in a bucket with old tank water and putting a lamp over it. When you have enough growth, put it in the tank. You could do this with several rocks that you could rotate in and out of the tank.

    One other fish great in your PH, and does very well in a PH of 9 (achieved by adding backing soda and epsom salt which in turn adds both calcium. and magnesium) are the smaller juliodichromis. They grow to 3" and you could have up to 3 in a 40 g.

    All great ideas Thanks. There are so many foods on the market.

    Is it possible to put juliodichromis with the Pseudotropheus demasoni? The body type is similar in the dorsal fin, but I don't know if the size and color difference is enough to be non threatening to the pseudo. Beautiful fish though. I have a whole bottle of replenish that puts calcium and magnesium in the water, is that ok?

    Thanks,
    marc4
