Anyone try to make a recipee for their Bristlenose or L number and feed them.
Interested to know what they put in it.

Wanted to try to give them a variety of food at once rather than giving them cucumber or zuchini or fruits.

Also, anyone feed Prawn to their Bristlenose? What happen if you feed them too much Prawn?

The occasional treat of prawn is OK, but no more than once a week and no more than about 10% of there weekly food.

Overfeeding of protein food can cause bloat, read deano's post about bloat HERE

They need a piece of bogwood in the tank, which they will chew on to get the lignin from it which they need to aid their digestion.
