PostSubject: Which foods for L144   Sat Nov 17, 2012 11:02 pm

Hi all I'm picking up 5 young L144's (false) tomorrow & apart from sinking catfish pellets & cucumber what else should I offer them ? I know my Last common BN did ok on the foods I mentioned as she lived for 9 years but sadly lost her due old age & some nasty wounds the young male inflicted on her

Hi there,all i can tell you is what i feed mine and what they do well on.I feed tinned green beans (they can be purchased in very small tins,at least they can where i live),i also feed Tetra Pro Veg Crisps (good conditioning food,a small pinch a couple times a week),Hikari wafers,deskinned peas once a week,cucumber or courgette once a week ( unless i have fry and then i usualy keep a fresh piece in the tank most of the time but still feed the other things aswell ).

I have tried lots of different foods and have got down to what they like the most and what is good for them.i hope this helps a little.

HI
My L144's also like Butternut squash and sweet potato, they tend to last a little longer before going soft and having to remove them, they also go bonkers for prawn and mussels, athough these are put in the tank for my omnivores.

Hi,I would be very careful of the amount of prawns and muscles the bristlenoses eat as this can quickly lead to bloat.

Thanks for that, i am aware of to much protein for herbivores so do limit it, but as I say it's put in for the omnivores and the little sods can't leave it alone,
