 Haven't  yet  heard  that  name  but  as  far  as  i've  used  i'll  rank  Cichlid  Sticks  as  No.1  for  CA  cichlids.    Dont  remember  the  co  name  as  its  not  available  now  and  even  if  available  will  surely  drill  a  hole  in  your  wallet  but  its  worth  it.

 I  feed  my  flowerhorn  a  beefheart  mix  thats  got  Green  peas,  prawns,  spirulina,  beta  carotene,  multi  vitamin,  calcium,  and  zinc!  Yeah,  I  really  do!  And  some  banana  added  to  it  too...  
 
 And  the  bugger  shows  good  red  color.  As  Adip  said,  the  astaxanthin  in  the  prawns  does  a  lot  of  good  to  fishes  of  this  kind.  
 
 He  gets  prawns  once  in  a  while  too.  And  gobbles  them  up  well.
 
 I  would  suggest  you  feed  a  varied  diet,  and  could  include  some  readymade  food  too.  
 
 If  you  find  heart  and  prawns  messy,  I  would  suggest  tetrabits.  
 
 Works  like  a  charm!  Believe  me,  it  does  wonders.
 
 BTW,  I  live  in  Coimbatore,  and  can  be  reached  on  98431  12580.  DO  gimme  a  buzz,  if  you  need  any  more  info!

 Nitin,  Venki,
 
 Try  adding  some  Tetra  Bits  to  the  BH  mix  as  it  improves  the  over  all  health  in  flower  horns  and  improves  colour  to  a  certain  extent.  Changing  25%  water  every  week  triggers  growth  and  keeps  the  fish  in  top  shape.

 Wow  Nityn,  combatorian  creating  flutters  on  style???  Keep  it  up  with  your  good  tradition  -  show  out  your  new  hairdo.
 
 Nityn  as  we  were  speaking  on  your  suggestion  on  feeding  shrimps  /  prawns.  I  understand  its  best  for  fishes  to  consume  shrimps  with  their  shell  to  bring  out  the  redness.
 
 You  mention  that  the  body  portion  too  has  enough  color  enhancing  sources.
 
 Can  someone  throw  more  light  on  this  subject??

 Yeah  Venki!  The  shell  is  the  one  which  is  rich  in  beta  carotene.    But  we  need  to  remove  the  head  and  the  tail  part  as  it  could  create  some  digestive  problems.

 Madhu
 
 forgive  my  ignorance.  
 
 Shrimps  and  prawns,  i  presume  shrimps  grow  out  into  prawns  -  correct  me  if  i'm  wrong.
 
 Shrimps  as  far  as  i  know  grow  out  to  prawns.  correct  me  if  i'm  wrong.
 
 The  head  part  is  very  sharp,  the  body  portion  is  edible,  but  still  has  a  thin  shell,  the  tail  portion  is  like  a  fan.  This  i  observed  two  days  back  when  my  mother  cooked  it  for  me.  I  threw  in  a  one  big  prawn.  My  fish  grabbed  it  by  its  head  portion,  which  became  pulpy  in  a  sec  and  puked  the  whole  portion  and  never  even  went  to  it  afterwards.
 
 I  did  a  similar  experiment  sometime  back  when  i  had  my  oscars.  Early  morning  i  went  to  the  market,  paid  five  bucks  and  picked  3-4  prawns.  I  took  it  home  and  removed  the  head  portions,  whew  they  were  real  sick,  the  odour  it  turned  out  was  unbearable.  Unfortunately  my  wife  was  3  moths  preg  suffering  from  morning  sickness  and  could  not  tolerate  the  stink.  I  threw  them  out  immediately.
 
 Now  i  need  to  feed  shrimps  /  prawns  how  do  i  go  now.  I'm  trying  to  send  people  and  collect  shrimps  from  a  fish  farm  near  mettupalayam.  Second  option  i'm  going  to  the  supermarket  to  buy  processed  prawns.  Which  will  you  suggest.

 Shrimps  and  prawns  are  different.
 

 But  it  happens  that  people  confuse/mislead  prawns  &  shrimps.    My  local  fish  market  sells  tiger  prawns  as  shrimps  Mad
 Shrimps  exists  both  in  freshwater  &  marine  but  i  havent  heard  of  a  freshwater  prawn.  Confused
