Hi, I live in Melbourne and am looking for some feed recommendations. I have 20 5cm goldfish and 3 silver perch fingerlings. I have been feeding them "Staple Diet" 32% protein (pic below) but from what I've read that's not enough protein. The plants don't look super happy either.

What does everyone recommend for these fish for the best growth of them and the plants?

Cheers

I have been using the Skretting Nova ME 3mm sinking for goldfish and would be fine for silver perch.
Goldfish don't need/like a lot of protein like food fish so you need to stay around 30-40% protein.
They like pellets.. and pellets are best for AP.

Sinking good for goldfish as it addresses air gulping...
but you need a yabbie or two in the tank to clean up the food on bottom.

Used to get it via Ian Ideal Fish - but he has stopped operating now.
Need to find a new supplier :(

If fish are a bit small still get the 3mm and then just crush it a bit while they are smaller.
