Surely you jest.
Is huge difference between ingredient's in NLS cichlid formula,and blood worm's which are nearly 80 % moisture and are being offered less and less nowday's by most fish keeper's due to poor nutritional value,and often sewage rich water where they are collected.
Ingredient's for NLS cichlid formula are... South Anartic Krill,Herring,Squid, Mussel Protein's,Algae meal,Kelp,Spirulina,Vegetable matter, includes spinach,red and green cabbage,peas,broccoli,red pepper,zuchinni,tomato,kiwi,apricot,pear,mango,app le,papaya,peach,and afore mentioned garlic.
Is hand's down,,better food for nearly all fishes from herbivores to Large cichlid's such as the Oscar.
Have kept large south american cichlid's for many year's, and NLS is my staple food for these fish along with freeze dried cricket's (Fluker's).Meal worm's,chopped earthworm's, Tilapia fillet.
Would under no circumstances offer the cichlid's store bought feeder fish which could very well be sickly considering often horrid condition's they are kept in at fish store.Only takes one sick feeder fish to infect your cichlid once the sickly feeder's are consumed and many fish become fixated on the live feeder's and refuse more nutritonal food's.
