i have a few questions:
* i am wondering how many cubes are in a gram
* whats the best way of storage and how long does it last

The 100 gram bag lasts months depending on how many discus you have so the 1000 gram bag would probably last a VERY long time.

I would venture to say that if you have a 75 gallon tank with 6 adult discus in it and you feed these as one of the 2 to 3 feedings a day recommended here, you would need 2 cubes per day.

A 200 gram bag should last you 3 or 4 months, kilo - well over a year.

Just depends on how many fish you are feeding

I must have severely overfed them. I was feeding one cube per two juvenile (3 - 4") discus. So for ten discus I used five cubes. I went through 300 grams in two months for one tank of grow-outs. :laugh:

You get 60 cubes on average per 20g. I get mine in 3 kg lots that would last me about 6 months maybe with 10 pairs, 30 4week - 4 month old young and 30 sub adults and adults.
