Repashy super green or soilent green
I'm worried about my neon blue goby. He is a juvenile who seems to have lost weight since I got him a couple of months ago. He isn't growing. Food competitors are 2 adult rainbow sp. algae eating gobies, 3 amano shrimp, one yellow shrimp, 2 nerita snails and an unknown number of baby mts snails. They live in a 12 gallon fluval edge that is lit with stock lighting 11 - 12 hours a day. There used to be plenty of food until I added the Amanos last month. Except for the un-killable clado algae, the Amanos have eaten everything.
I am thinking about supplementing his diet with Repashy. I think soilent green would be the appropriate food since my other two algae eating gobies seem to thrive off the biofilm in my tank more than the algae, but I saw someone online saying they use super green (with is vegan instead).
Does anyone have experience with this food especially for the gobies? Does the food spoil the water if it doesn't get eaten (I would have to drain water out of the edge to remove uneaten food).
Thanks for your help!
