    Do you let it float on the surface @discusluv or squeeze the air out and feed it below by hand? I don't pre-soak either, but generally the food is soaked by the time the fish get it. I feed my cichlids by hand, I just scatter some pieces in the water column for the tetras. Is it the same for you?

    The freeze-dried black-worms I get are in cubes and I feed it in different ways depending on fish; for the discus I put a cube on the glass for them to feed, for the tetras I crumble some on top of water, for cichlids I break it up before hand and place under water line, swirling in the water so they disperse. The geophagus are such piggies they will take a whole cube in their mouths if given the chance, so I have to break in pieces before feeding.

    Isn't it funny how each fish is different? I know exactly what you mean! I have an angelfish who doesn't really eat pellets off the surface, but he'll 'catch' the pellets if I grab his attention and he waits at the top mouth open. I throw it almost directly in his mouth, it's so funny!

    Ha ha! Thats hilarious! Angel's are so smart! It is striking how different the fish are in terms of feeding, it is trial and error. I was horrified when I tried to feed my geophagus some freeze-dried black-worms by putting the cube on the glass like I feed my discus and one put half a cube in his mouth and another grabbed the whole other half! I kept waiting to see one or both have some kind of reaction from it--- but, they were both fine. But, now they get pieces because they are gluttons! :o!

    This is where I get mine- great product:

    Thanks very much for the link :)

    Yeah, I bought some live white worms years ago, I grabbed a wad, swished it in the water, but they stayed all together and one of my juvenile (at the time) angelfish ate the whole wad. I freaked out. He bloated up and stayed bloated for 2 months, I moved him to a 27g hex tank on his own, fed him peas and veggies only, it took 4 months before he was back to normal and allowed back in the 120g. I've been careful after that to break up little pieces for them! I've never kept goes, but I could imagine!
