Okay, I know there are different kinds of NLS, but none of the ones that I have been able to find are specifically for herbivores. So. . .my question is. . .is the cichlid formula okay for ALL cichlids?? Even herbivores like tropheus?? Thanks!

Tropheus are notorious for "bloat", an intestinal disorder that can be triggered by diets heavy in animal proteins. To minimize this, feed primarily algae based foods such as a good spirulina flake.

It's also a good idea to provide alot of light to encourage algae growth on the rockwork.

I fed mine Nutrafin Max Spirulina Flakes and every now and then some freeze dried krill. I don't think NLS has a blend especially for herbivores.

I feed my trophs nls cichlid formula aswell as nls thera a. I have never had a case of bloat. As long as you don't over kill on the feeding you will be fine. I feed all my 30 trophs about 1/4 tsp in the morning and in the evening. Sometimes I feel like its not enough for all them.

Thanks! I feed mine spirulina at the moment, but I think I am going to start feeding both spirulina and NLS. :) At least until I sell them.

I have been feeding all my trops NLS cichlid formula with spirulina flakes for years now and never had bloat at all!!!! I now presently have 8 diffrent types of trops and are breeding like crazy and the colors are mind blowing!!! What works for me is that in the morning I would feed them NLS, In the evening, spirulina and daniichi veggie deluxe. Like I was saying before, I have had nothing but great sucsess this way. It all goes to say is that everything done in moderation is best!!!! It is to better under feed a fish than is to stuff one!!!!!! Give it a try and you will see what I mean.
