Not sure if this had been brought up but I was wondering if someone had the name of a good pellet food for Discus?

New Life Spectrum exclusively. I would do their Thera+A formula because it has enough garlic to kill some parasites, something that is very useful with discus.Owner: Aquarium Maintenance and Pet Care Company

Discus do best with a number of foods but pellets should be the staple - also consider Hikari Bio-Gold pellets (floats and sinks) as well as their sterilized frozen blood worms (they are also vitamin fortified.) Brine shrimp for adults and freshly hatched ones that have been fed a high value food is excellent for fry.Knowledge is fun(damental)
A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is fifteen Sterba's Corys. Filters: canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber that removes phosphates and nitrates! Also, a highly dangerous commercial nitrate removal unit from hell

Really, pellets should be the staple? What about frozen, like San Francisco Bay?كل نفس ذائقة الموت ثم الينا ترجعون

I wish my discus would eat pellets...I feed only bloodworms for one reason that is all they will eat...I have tried the stand off where I feed pellets and they just stare at me...and eventually I give in and vacuum out and drop some thawed bloodworms and they go crazy for it. They are kinda like kids I guess .. if you raise them the wrong way you can never fix them... I'll keep trying different food. On the plus side I have never had any diseases or any negative affects of feeding solely bloodworms. Thanks for all the advice.
