 Niroo!
 
 When  you  have  access  to  IAH,  why  do  you  limit  your  choices  to  what  your  local  LFS  can  supply  you?
 
 Just  let  us  know  what  you  need.  We  do  have  a  few  commercial  people  here,  who  can  source  you  whatever  supplies  you  need.  ANd  yeah,  most  of  them  ship  too!

 Soyameal  seems  to  be  a  good  substitute  for  non-veg  stuff.  I  boil  the  soyameal,  powder  fish  food  pellets  and  mix  them  together.  All  my  fish  like  it.

 I  hope  you  do  not  believe  that  fish  food  pellets  are  veg.  That  is  unless  it  is  algae  wafers  or  tablets  which  cost  a  bomb.

 While  I  have  not  got  anything  aganist  home  made  fish  food.  It  has  looked  a  large  hassle  for  me.  Buying  ordinary  pellets  form  LFS  and  feeding  live  food  in  a  month  or  so  has  worked  for  me.
 One  of  the  problems  with  home  made  food  is  that  unless  you  get  the  recipie  very  accurate,  it  tends  to  disintegrate  in  water  very  soon,  and  water  gets  polluted.
 The  fishes  you  have  mentioned  are  not  veg  fishes,  they  need  omnivirous  diet,  in  fact  tI  think  they  are  more  suited  for  non  veg  diets.
 If  you  feed  them  greens  only,  they  will  have  problems.
 In  my  experience  feeding  ordinaery  pellets  give  good  results,  just  rotate  them  with  tetra  bits  etc.

 You  can  make  around  250  grams  at  a  time,  and  store  in  the  freezer.

 Spirulina  is  an  extremely  nutritious  blue-green  algae  that  is  gaining  popularity  in  health  food  stores  of  late.  In  fact,  Spirulina  is  the  oldest  cultivated  blue-green  algae  in  history,  dating  back  to  the  Mayan  and  Aztec  cultures.  Coincidentally,  Spirulina  also  grows  naturally  in  many  lakes  including  Lake  Malawi.  
 
 You  can  use  Spirulina  supplements  as  well  because  of  its  high  vitamin  content,  including  Vitamins  A,  C,  B-12,  Iron,  Calcium,  Thiamin,  Riboflavin,  Niacin,  and  Zinc.
 
 But  as  an  alternative  to  buying  your  fish  food  from  a  local  fish  store  (LFS)  is  to  make  it  yourself.  This  can  turn  out  to  be  much  cheaper  than  commercial  foods,  and  just  as  nutritious.
 
 This  recipe  is  made  with  Spirulina  powder  and  AGAR  (Agar  is  a  gelatinous  substance  chiefly  used  as  a  culture  medium  for  microbiological  work).  It  may  also  be  refered  to  as  agar-agar,  kanten  or  agal-agal  (Ceylon  agar).
 
 For  AGAR  Availability  see  http://www.indiamart.com/marine-chemicals/#agar  or  http://www.alibaba.com/company/11204280.html
 
 
 Mix  the  dry  Spirulina  powder  and  dry  agar  together  then  add  boiling  water  while  stirring  until  you  have  a  smooth  thick  consistency.  You  can  experiment  with  different  combinations  of  Spirulina  and  agar,  but  a  3  part  Spirulina  to  1  part  agar  ratio  is  about  right.  You  have  to  be  attentive  when  mixing,  as  the  agar  will  turn  lumpy  very  quickly.  Place  the  blend  into  small  zip-lock  type  freezer  bags  before  it  sets.  In  case  yo  cannot  get  a  Zip  Lock  type  bag  take  a  plastic  bag  and  set  flat.  The  finished  product  can  then  be  stored  in  the  freezer.  Do  not  use  gelatin  as  the  resulting  product  will  be  like  rubber,  and  the  fish  may  have  difficulty  digesting  it.  The  agar-based  product  is  also  softer  and  easier  for  them  to  eat.  When  it's  time  to  feed  the  fish,  cut  the  blend  into  small  squares  and  place  in  the  aquarium.  Feed  only  as  much  as  as  fish  will  eat  in  2-3  minutes.
 
 You  can  also  experiment  with  this  recipe  by  adding  different  vegetables.  You  can  add  Zukini,  spinach  may  be  carrots.peas,  broccoli,  oranges,  apples,  lettuce  etc  as  well
 
 You  will  need  to  peel  the  vegetables  first,  then  grate  with  a  cheese  grater,  and  boil  it  before  adding  it  to  the  Spirulina-Agar  mixture.  You  might  also  add  liquid  Vitamin  or  Multi  Vitamin  Capsules,  may  be  half  capsule  to  the  receipe  and  blend  it.  A  little  bit  of  Garlic  may  also  be  added.  
 
 Please  ensure  to  freeze  the  food  as  otherwise  it  will  detoriate  and  can  be  harmful  for  the  fish.
 
 Hopefully  your  fish  will  enjoy  it,  but  as  mentioned  before  none  of  these  fishes  are  strictly  vegetarian  and  hence  other  foods  should  be  mixed.
 
 Regards
 
 Sujoy

 Dear  Niranjan
 Why  not  you  try  cornflex  or  Soya  nuts(crushed)  witha  few  drops  of  multivitamin  syrups.  you  can  also  use  garlic  juices  to  enhance  your  fishes  immune  power.  For  colur  enhancement  you  can  use  carrot  juice  and  merigold  juice(to  be  soaked).  Share  your  views  and  congrats  for  stating  a  new  beneficial  topics  Thumb Up
