You're doing right. When the bellys start growing you can stop feeding for that day. For example ... when an adult spec. Assam has eaten two earth worms of about 6 cm. of length, it's had enough.

That's equal to one carrot of about 8 cm. I guess. :lol:

What do you think is the best food for them now while growing and later when grown up? Arent some worms too fatty?

Hi,
earthworms are not fatty - and they´re cheap, if you´re able and willing to dig around a bit!

Feli, I would if I had any place for it. It's pretty dry now and I don't know any good humid place I could dig... But maybe some could be found in the local fishing store?

A variaty of food is always best to my opion. So (Cichlid) pellets, earthworms, mealworms, fishfilet, prawns, crickets etc. You can use defrosted frozen food from the supermarket as well. One should notice that chunks of f.e. defrosted fish(filet) shouldn't be to big to swallow. So it's better to cut it into stripes than into cubes.

Mostly I buy earthworms (dendrobena) at the fishery-shops because there are hardly any worms left in the surroundings of my house. :lol:
