Sandeep,
 How  do  you  say  that  feeding  live  food  on  regular  basis  will  harm  fishes??
 Most  of  the  fry  are  brought  up  on  Artemia  or  Infusoria......  and  even  I  know  people  giving  live  food  for  fishes  that  are  omnivorous  and  they  grow  very  well  in  live  food  than  the  pellets?                

 Gokul
 Most  of  the  tropical  freshwater  fishes  that  we  keep  are  omnivirous  in  nature  which  means  that  they  eat  both  veg  material  &  live  food.  The  digestive  systems  of  such  animals  are  built  like  that,  digestive  systems  of  pure  vegetarians  &  pure  non  vegs  are  designed  for  their  type  of  diet.  Feeding  wrong  diet  like  veg  to  nonveg  fishes  or  only  veg  to  omnivirous  fish  is  bound  to  effect  their  health.
 Consider  a  goldfish  in  nature,  during  its  feeding  time  it  will  not  find  live  food  all  the  time  and  will  eat  some  veg  food  even  though  it  might  like  live  food  better.  In  nature  their  diets  will  be  balanced  as  most  things  in  nature  are.
 However  in  closed  envoirnment  of  our  aquariums  there  can  be  no  natural  balance,  if  we  feed  live  food  to  goldies  every  time,  they  will  of  course  eat  it.  But  in  the  long  run  it  will  not  be  good  for  them.  The  metabolic  system  of  omnivirous  fish  will  not  be  able  to  cope  up  with  such  protien  rich  diet  and  the  fish  will  suffer.
 Fry  need  high  protien  diet  as  they  have  to  grow,  however  once  they  group  their  metabolic  rate  will  slow  down  and  exclusive  high  protien  will  make  them  unhealthy.
 You  can  draw  same  comparision  with  humans,  humans  are  also  omnivirous,  if  we  eat  pure  nonveg  or  pure  veg  ,  our  health  is  bound  to  suffer.  We  need  animal  protien  in  our  diet  that  is  why  milk  &  milk  products  are  adviced  for  pure  veg  humans,  as  they  provide  nescessery  animals  protiens  to  our  body

 Thanks  on  the  explanation  Sandeep......
 
 So,  a  balanced  diet  with  both  veg  and  non  veg  recipe  would  help  the  omnivores  better  rather  going  for  veg  only  recipe  or  non  veg  only  recipe.............

 Hi,
 
 How  much  pellets  costs  at  your  place  ?  Are  you  planning  to  opening  a  online  store  in  which  we  can  order  stuff  and  it  can  then  be  delivered  by  courier  or  Railways  etc.  ?
 
 Thanks.

 When  it  comes  to  diet,  most  fishes  can  adapt  to  a  wide  range  of  diet.   Even  in      the  fish's  niche,  they  eat  a  wide  range  of  food  depending  upon  availability  which  means  they  can  adapt  to  digest  out  of  range  food.   Of  course  there  are  a  few  exceptions  like  malawian  &  tropheus  grazers  who  will  bloat  on  a  hi-pro  food.   But  most  others  can  adapt  to  a  wide  range  of  food.   For  eg.,  my  Fronts  (classified  carnivores)  take  blanched  palak  and  Uarus  (classified  herbivores)  take  live  bloodworms.   The  only  major  problem  with  feeding  live  food  is,  if  they're  left  uneaten,  they'll  bring  down  the  water  quality  exponentially.   If  you  can  make  regular  water  changes,  then  you  can  very  well  use  live  feed.   Live  food  is  used  to  accelerate  growth  to  the  max.   If  you  are  not  eye  on  taking  your  fish  to  the  limits  of  size,  almost  all  aquaria  fishes  can  do  very  well  with  dry  food.
