 I  was  thinking  of  mixing  all  food.For  eg  mix  blood  worms,Tetra  bits  etc  etc  and  feed  it  at  once.In  this  way  all  fishes  get  all  nutrients.     Can  anybody  suggest  me  whether  what  am  doing  is  right?

 No  ,Its  just  that  ,One  variety  of  food  will  not  suffice  all  the  requirements  of  a  fish  .Hence  mixing  the  food

 Hey  Nitshi
 
 Your  idea  of  feeding  a  mixed  diet  is  good.
 
 I  would  suggest  you  stagger  it,  you  really  dont  need  to  mix  it,  for  example  if  you  feed  your  fish  twice  a  day,  feed  live  feed  once  and  dry  feed  the  second  time.
 
 Diet  also  depends  a  lot  on  the  kind  of  fish  you  keep.  Can  you  give  more  details  on  that?

 Nitshi,
 
 What's  the  size  of  your  tank??  Because  even  two  arowana  will  require  a  large  tank  in  future.  You  are  telling  you  also  have  3  big  parrots(assume  atleast  5")  and  8  small  parrots(they  will  also  gro  abt  8"),  4  sharks  they  will  grow  a  lot.
 
 May  I  know,  what's  the  tank  size  and  abt  your  future  plan?

 Hi  Nitin
 
 Pl  Nitin  is  a  male  so  no  she.
 Mix  diet  is  good  idea  but  the  fishes  you  have  are  mostly  carnivores  so  feediing  them  too  much  vegi  will  have  problem  so  mix  the  food  accordingly.
 Nitin  pl  give  full  detail  of  your  huge  tank  ,filter,subt,and  big  ?  how  you  clean  it.

 @  iqbal  urfff  iqss
 
 My  tank  2  months  old.  Hve  put  an  external  filter.another  One  is  on  its  way.  To  clean  between  the  pebbles  i  use  a  half  hp  motor  to  suck  the  dirt(like  a  vaccum  cleaner).Actually  i  am  finding  new  ways  to  clean  the  bottom  matter.
