Feeding ikkle severums :-)

PostAuthor: Steve D » Mon Feb 13, 2012 19:03

Could someone suggest a good quality slow sinking food suitable for small Severums. I feed my large one on the cichlid pellets I used to feed my Oscars on but the little ones won`t come to the surface to eat the smaller ones (nicked off my Malawis :lol: ) I have been using Tetra Prima granules but they`re really, really small!

I have tried crushing them (not in a grinder though, just with my manly strength :lmao: ) but they don`t sink quick enough :(
