    Do ADF's "need" pellets?

    I'm currently feeding my African Dwarf Frogs a combo of frozen daphnia, brine shrimp, blood worms and amphibigold pellets on different days. I soak the pellets overnight and mash them up before feeding as they're far too big otherwise, but the frogs just spit them out. They don't spit out any...

    Catfish Feeding

    Hi everyone,   Just wondering if you were to feed a catfish pellets would the other fish eat it before them? If so, would sinkable pellets be better. Any suggestions would be great.   Many thanks,   Fishyfish890
