ZM's premium granules.

Postby Chris » Wed Jun 08, 2011 8:07 am

Hi all,

just thought i would leave a post on zm's premium granules, placed an order on Friday and it arrived yesterday (tuesday) all well packaged up no probs great. Gave them some last night now bear in mind this is the first time i have feed this to my fish and what a sight! everyone and i mean everyone was out feeding they could not get enough of it. I started in cichlids back about February time in a rekord 800 tank with fry and juveniles feeding them standard tropical flakes because that's what i had left over from when i kept tropical fish. I then went to my lfs and got cichlid food jmc high grow, my lfs are well respected but not specialist in cichlids by any means. Over a period of time and messing about with gravel changing it to coral sand and from plant and ornaments now to limestone and coral rock and changing tanks from the rekord tank to now a 4ft 250l tank alot of the fish have gradually lost colouration. Not sure the reason weather constant messing with tanks, growth or their food. The fish are now settled in the bigger tank (about a week) and some colouration did come back and the addition of some new fish has helped but not as bright as they should be. I will give them a few weeks, and i will update this post to let you all know how the colours come on, but for now a big :handgestures-thumbup: to zm.

I will try to get before and after pics to show or prove if this stuff works.

Mine go crazy for it every time they get fed so I`m glad that I bit the bullet and bought some :handgestures-thumbup:
It seems to be lasting forever too which makes the price seem really good value, well that`s until I dropped the container and half of the stuff ended up in the hoover :handgestures-thumbdown: :text-lol:

Cheers guys.

I have been advised to ease them onto it from the old stuff to prevent digestion problems, so i will do that over the next few days and then make the full conversion. i have a couple of Aulonocara jacobfreibergi from a local lfs (impulse buy my son liked them) they have completly lost there colour (i think they were on the magic stuff, boo!) one even went nearly pure white but from moving to big tank they are back to a brown colour with a hint of the colour they were in the shop so lets hope fingers crossed!!

The aulonocara from the LFS may well have been hormoned. If they were small, almost definitely, and they may never regein colour, might even be female.

So just don't look for miracles.

Also don't put all the blame for lack of colour down to food. It is more likely due to stress and even water parameters, rather than what you have been feeding them.

Cheers jimbo,

they were about 2 inch when i got them but colour slowly faded over the first month to a brown colour, not sure exactly what type they are could even be line bread will post pics soon (in the right place) to try and find out, but yea think you are right about the hormons. my water parameters are fine and check them every week with 50% water changes ever 5-7 days loads of filtrations, so i know its not that. size wise they are up there with the big ones in the tank, i got everthing as fry or juv's over the last 4 months, i sold the rekord 800 they were in and housed them in a 3ft for a couple of weeks which all the fish hated (thats when the colour drop off) as i was setting up the 250l tank. now they are in that they have gone back to the colour they were before the temporary move. i have increased my stock level to reduce the aggresion from my demonic yellow lab so the tank is quite calm nobody really botheres them. so we will see how they go not expecting miricales but some colour would be nice i know the size they are at now is generally when they start to colour up, so heres hopeing!
