guys im not tryin to pick a fight or nothing at all. i take everything you guys have to say seriously. but about feeders you guys say they stunt growth and not very nice color. well ive always fed my piranhas feeders and when i posted pics of my caribe, everyone had somthing nice to say about there color
. and when i had all my baby reds geez they must have grown 3 inchs in a month and a bit all with feeders. so maybe its diffrent for everyone but all this stuff about feeders hasent been true for me. infact i dont think ive seen a caribe with nicer color
but like i said im not pickin bones feeders have just never been a proublem for me besides the $$ for em.

I understand the use of feeders (irregularly feed my piranhas conditioned feeder fish) but that vidio takes the mic. I am very supprised at his ok water quality as goldfish poo alot!

Poor red belly...

a span of a few months will not show signs of the stunted growth....keep doing as ur doing and wait out a year or so...and then come tell me that the goldfish didnt stunt ur fish's growth

what if he wants to keep his p small, so he doesnt have to upgrade his tank? Maybe small is not so bad? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

disease is another story

i do believe that stunting not only causes visible growth problems but i think there are also internal problems that occur as well, from what ive read in the past...who knows...

just because it works, or appears to work... doesnt mean its the best.... and thats all some people want is the best possible treatment for their "babies"... some people use whats readily available and easy for them... im not judging because once a week or so, my P's eat feeders, but thats not the only thing they eat, meerly a snack... its your decision on what you want to feed, dead, live, etc.... and nobody can tell you otherwise
