Hi, are JBL catfish pellets okay for BN or do they not have enough algae and have too high protein?

Usually Catfish pellets are for fish with an omnivore diet so they are higher in protein. They could be given as as occasional treat but not on a regular basis.

Its sad but unfortuantly there are people who are idiots, and my heart does go out to them. It does get annoying when they spout garbage and claim to be experts on the issue though. Most generic petshops fall into this catagory Sad
