Any Discus bought from us will have been fed Stendker Goodheart from the age of three weeks. Stendker Goodheart has been used and developed by the Stendker Hatchery since 1966.The food contains over 100 different vitamin, minerals, crustaceans, insect, vegetable matter. It is a compete food and feeding your Stendker Discus correctly is essential.Goodheart is available in 100 g blister packs and 500 g bulk slabs, it is available in three variations, Regular, Colour and Spirulina.How much to feed. - Discus to 12 cm require 1.5g of Goodheart per day, per fish - fed over two or three feeds per day. - Discus 12 cm to 18 cm require 2g of Goodheart per day, per - fed over to or three feeds per day.When established in your aquarium they will constantly look for food, but you need to resist and find a balance between the nutritional needs of the fish and maintaining water quality.How to feed.Blisters are easy to portion as they are packed in 5g cubes, the slabs need breaking, this is easily done by scoring the frozen slab with a Stanley knife and breaking it, or cutting with secateurs. Some hobbyist allow the food to softens lightly, cut into cubes and re freeze in an air tight tube. A piece the size of a 10p coin is approximately 5g.Never feed completely frozen as the fish will attack the food and can damage their mouths.We allow it to defrost to soft, break the portion into several smaller pieces and feed to fish. Don't run under a tap to defrost as this will flush soe of the vitamin and mineral content away.Spread it around the aquarium so they all get a share and prevent a single Discus from sitting over the food and preventing the other getting a share, Discus are cichlids and will behave as such.Should any food remain uneaten (unlikely) remove it.Discus eat well, during feeding it is a good time to check your fish are well and is a good time to spot any potential problems from the fishes behaviour.
To eliminate 100% the possibility of "cross contamination" or "Discus Plague" it is advisable not to mix Discus from different sources or breeders. Choose to keep Wild Discus, Asian Discus or Stendker Discus.
