    I'm not aware of foods that enhance the yellow, but I definitely work to avoid adding foods with reds, which turn them orange. I use Al's FDBW and discus pellets.

    Almost all commercial foods contain asaxanthin which will turn your yellows orange. I fed pure deer heart and Al's FDBW's with spinach and my yellow stayed yellow 20180930_073757.jpg

    I feed my yellow tank fish Al’s FDBWs after they’ve been soaked in Carophyll yellow pigment. This is not done at feeding, but en mass and allowed to dry out. Unfortunately, most foods have coloration for the reds, so one has to make up special food to maintain and enhance the yellows.
