    Default Food for Discus

    Hello all,

    My discus are not eating beef hearts. I purchase the frozen San Francisco Bay beef heart; it just fowls up the water. They eat the pellets and blood worms as well as brine shrimp.

    I am trying to feed different foods but this particular food they are not having it.

    Any suggestions for alternative food, would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    I make my own BH for discus. They love it and there's never any leftovers to foul the water. Plus, freeze dried blackworm cubes are a favorite food as well. Very nutritious!

    I recommend backing off on the frozen blood worms and go with any high quality dried food. My discus happen to relish beefheart, but they start their day with VibraBites. I put in a lot, but the bottom gets cleaned by noon. They get frozen food at the end of the day.
    At my age, everything is irritating.
