    Default Ordered Beefheart flake today!

    Been reading so many good things about this flake, I decided to order some today. I'm out in Arkansas. Will this food turn my yellow discus orange? He's finally starting to lose some of the goldish red color he started to develop from color bits.

    Also have a silver pigeon I worry about with color ever changing.

    Can't wait to get it in!

    Crap. I give up on having my yellow discus get back to where it was. Nearly everything has red enhancer

    Al's FDBW original. Just worms, no color enhancers. Most of my fish get some pellets with enhancers, but I use the worms exclusively for my snow whites.

    Great service and the fish love the food! Thanks Bill.

    The only problem, is I may have started out giving them too much, but it all turned to a dust and made a layer of food dust at the top of my tank. May need to simply turn the filters off when they eat? Either way, thanks a ton and will be ordering again

    Glad to hear your fish are loving the food.
    The reason it breaks up is that is a min. of 40% beef heart (wet weight).
    And yes it has red enhancers in it so you fish will most likely turn orange.
