    DefaultWhat do you feed your monster fish?

    I was wondering what types of food you guys feed your big fish as the most cost effective/ healthy way to fill up your bigger 12+ inch fish?

    I have my 16” bluebase crossback arowana eating northfin carnivore, northfin arowana floating pellets, and frozen market prawn twice a week.
    My 4 indo and 1 ntt datnoids are on northfin carnivore daily and frozen market prawn 2x a week.

    I was thinking of feeding some sort of frozen fish fillet to fill up my arowana because it only eats a few pellets per day then starts spitting them out. Or should i try hikari floating sticks? Whats your guys feeding regime?

    Do you find that Northfin Carnivore makes your tank Stink 12hrs or so after feeding? I've got 3 FX6s running on my 250gal, and still have smelly issues after feeding northfin carnivore. No problems with hikari massivore though.

    I have not had that issue with northfin carnivore. But then my tank is also densely planted and my flagtail never leaves any leftovers to rot

    I feed all my monsters chopped tillapia Basa and sole fillets, as well as whole and chopped smelt, shrimp, kingworms, crickets and cockroaches(blabica dubia). And as far as feeding schedule I feed my grow out tanks 1-2 times a day with the occasional day off. My 240 gal and 500 gal pond i feed every second day
