Thank you, it is currently around 15 1/4 inches in length and still growing everyday. He is very aggressive and eats a lot.

I don't feed it live fishes as I have researched that many live specimens carry bacterium and parasites that can ultimately affect it. I try to feed it a variety of different feeds, some are purchased over seas and some here in the USA. I mix all my pellets and they include; Grand Sumo, Grand Sumo Red, Grand Omega Supreme, Grand Omega Supreme Red, Amazone, OSI Flowerhorn Pellets, New Life Spectrum, Tilapia growth pellets, Koi Wheat Germ Pellets for fiber, Hikari Cichlid Gold, and Alife Flowerhorn Pellets. And I like to feed them green peas, cucumbers, lettuce leaves, and every so often a few slices of oranges. They love the fresh vegetables and the occasional freeze dried bloodworms but everytime I open up the can I start sneezing uncontrollably. I think I may be allergic to the processing of the blood worms.

Marc Very Happy

THANK YOU!


Now I will feel motivated when I post about this on other forums, most people dont even pay attention to what I say, atleast I know that some people listen(I used to feed my fish guppies sometimes, but at the end I thought to myself, that it wasnt worth it. [now I only feed deformed and older guppies that are reaching the end of their life and it would be better for them to die a quick and kinda peaceful way, although I avoid it]


Some guy at oscarfish.com once said: "each feeder fish is another nail in your fishes coffin"

Highfive,for your midas you deserve a highfive Cool

He looks very well taken care of.

I like the variety of Prepared food and veggies that you are giving him and am now thinking about using those you listed that i have never tried.(which is everything except cichlid gold&OSI).I agree on not useing live food.
I am noticing that you are not including any frozen foods on the menu(krill,prawns,shrimp etc)Any special reason why?(are you concerned about pathogens in those as well) or just a preferance?

Any which way that is an Outstanding midas!

Thank you very much for the compliments my friends. As for the question as to where I purchase my food through, usually I buy through some of our members that are sponsors on http://www.flowerhornusa.com

And also a direct link to http://www.grandsumo.com. If interested you are more than invited to stop on by and personally ask our members for a chance to purchase some from them directly. Many of our members have been truly helpful and likely to help others that need it.

Thank you very much for the comments, as far as food supplements, I don't like to feed anything that is alive due to the problems with bacteria and parasites. The same goes for frozen foods when you go to purchase at an LFS you may think the food is safe but I've also encountered spoiled foods this way. Now I'm not saying that all frozen foods are bad, just a personal preference that I try to stay away from.

You're right, I too am registered at CM and a bunch of other sites as well as moderator on http://www.flowerhornusa.com and http://www.th3wetspot.com. These places you will always find me throughout the day doing some research from work and home. My job is always never ending but I truly enjoy it. Thank you for the nice comments and I'm glad many members can appreciate a beast of a specimen.

Marc
