    Recently got a green frog spawn and am feeding it coral grow (Red sea product).
    Is this good or bad?

    Please advise me on the above. And if i should feed it other foods what should it be.

    Thanks in advance.

    IMO Coral grow is a good product, however a small piece of meaty food is recommend from time to time.

    Hi

    Coral grow is good but they are healthy eaters and need good water quality for maximum growth.

    We cultivated them by giving 2 SMALL meals a day -
    1st we enticed them to start feeding with CORAL FRENZY
    Then we gave either FROZEN BRINE SHRIMP cut into small pieces or FROZEN lobster eggs
    The second meal was a mixture of all the frozen foods enriched with vitamins. This was mainly for the few fish but the Euphelias loved it as well.

    The main thing is the food particles need to be small and the current during feeding time should not remove the food of them while they eat.

    Moolis

    PS. You are welcome to come and visit and then we could show you the mix and how they eat, I love Euphelias so we always have some in stock.

    I have yet to see my frogspawns feeder tentacles... after nearly a month. And yes - i've looked often after lights out etc... I am not alone in this :p Perhpas some strains are more photosynthetically reliant than others?

    My froggies, torches and hammers have nver been fed and grow like the blazes! My hammer has grown from 3 heads to about 40 in 2 years, and never fed it.

    My hammer and my froggies extend sweepers, but mostly its chemical warfare with something close to them that causes it.
