 I  give  Tetra  bits  and  hikari  bio  gold.  But  I  think  chopped  earth  worm  is  good.

 Any  food  with  with  lots  of  protein.  TB  is  not  good  when  it  comes  to  conditioning  the  pair.  Go  for  bio  gold,  earth  worms,  animal  heart  mix,  shrimp  mix.

 chopped  means  Live  earth  worms  chopped?
 can  I  feed  them  in  feeding  cone  without  chopped?

 Search  for  older  topics  in  IAH  Discuss  Discus  forum  and  you  will  find  a  pictorial  guide  to  BHM/GHM  recipe  by  Yogesh  and  a  discussion  on  Earthworms  by  Discusolic  (our  very  own  Shiva  Nair).Those  are  the  most  precise  and  accurate  discussions  that  will  definitely  answer  all  your  queries.

 @Adesh  da,  what  is  the  problem  in  feeding  them  TB?  It  will  be  a  very  important  information  for  me.
 
 @Swapnil,  Yes,  wash  the  earthworm  and  then  chopped.  Better  you  follow  what  Swarnendu  said,  Shiva  sir  and  Yogesh  da's  recipe  are  the  best.

 Parbuddha,  my  experience  with  TB  in  conditioning  a  pair  is  not  good.  I  feel  Hikari  discus  bio-gold  conditions  the  pair  nicely  and  gives  good  result.  Nice  hatching  and  healthy  fries.

 @Prabuddha  ..I  think  TB  has  hormones  in  it.
 
 hummm...I  can't  do  large  amount  of  WC  daily  so  I'm  not  going  for  GHM/BHM.  Sad  
 I'll  go  for  hikari  Discus  Bio  Gold!  Very Happy  
 also  is  there  anything  like  TB  Breeders  Choice?  my  friend  said...???
 is  that  good  or  hikari  Bio  Gold  and  TB  Breeders  Choice  are  same?
 now  Hikari  or  TB  currently  not  available  in  my  city....
 so  until  I  get  them  can  I  feed  Frozen  BW  and  Tubiflex  worms?  Shocked  
 I  also  have  frozen  natural  krill  can  i  feed  them?

 @Swapnil:  Sorry,  but  i  dont  think  TB  contains  hormones.  It  is  the  Astaxanthin  which  gives  the  colour,  not  the  hormone.

 Good  decision.  BHM/GHM  requires  a  lot  of  WC.   Thumb Up
