Hey Tom,, i did not had any problems with BH with my discus. If they are fussy, keep giving the same thing for 1 week, removed uneaten food after 2 hrs.

Altumnut is just really nice

It's best to offer it at the first feeding of the day when they are hungry.
As for ingredients: http://www.archersdiscus.com/discus_food_8.html
Just scroll right to the bottom of page.

Tom,

I run into the same issue when I make mine.
Give them time and even your adults will take to it.
Most discus raised on bloodworms from young have troubles taking to anything else which is why I don't feed any BW.
A variety of foods is always best.

Default beef heart

well i watched today , seems he is taking it not like the juvies who are fighting for it .but like u said its a start . not to figure out how much to feed them im thinking a cube similar to a bloodworm package .
i am also feeding nls growth they seem to really like that one /flakes and some pellets.
thanks again

TankCla is a jewel in the rough

My recipe is simple: beef heart, salmon and shrimp. In the beginning they didn't eat it. After an year my 6 discus are eating 4 cubes (like bloodworms cubes) + pellets from automatic feeder, every day.
In time, they will eat only mixture.

Default beef heart

my recipe was pretty simple as well , beef heart /shrimp/fish food what ever i had lying around /garlic just a little .
how do u use the auto feeder with a gooey mix , i thought the auto feeder was for dry food and flakes .
