I'd like to try the catfish stuff.

I can offer samples of

omega one first flake,
Yourfishstuff decapped brine shrimp eggs,
Yourfishstuff earthworm flakes,
Yourfishstuff super starter, (fry powder)
Yourfishstuff green grazers, (lil algae wafers)

I've got 3 .8 oz containers of sera Marin granules for marine fish (which I've never kept and have no plans to)

And I can bring small microworm starters.

What's a good size golden pearls food for which fish? I see a whole range of sizes from 5 to 500 micrometers, but I don't really know what size is appropriate.

I actually traded away all of my excess food already ... does anybody want moss or floaters instead? I have a bumper crop of Salvinia minima.

i have the 300-500 which are small pellet sized and very popular with all my fish. you'll want smaller microns for fry.
