Otohime is a pretty common growout food. Lots of people use homemade frozen recipes as well. NLS pellets are popular for broodstock, as is homemade frozen, some people feed larger sized Otohime. Variety is always good. PE Mysis is also a popular choice for broodstock.
Given sufficient thrust, pigs will fly just fine.

Well, there's my list. :)

I like to wean them onto Ocean Nutrition or New Life Spectrum for a month before they go to market. If they are eating these, they'll survive in most hobbyist systems. Also, it depends on what you're breeding of course.

Weaning onto ON or NLS pellets before market is a really good idea Jeff.

I haven't been able get Rod's food where I am, otherwise I would try it. I don't like to feed too much NLS because of the soy isolate in it, but I find my Darwin clowns really darken up if they get some NLS regularly, so I make one meal a day NLS pellets. I haven't tried the new TDO yet, but have some arriving this week. I'm hoping to replace the NLS with TDO or even plain Otohime. Otohime uses soy lecithin which I like better.

I have been looking at Otohime, that company is like the best kept secret, I can only find the US distributor not the company it self. Another thing is that they only sell i larger scale 1 kg minimum.
Hmm TDO looks really interresting as well : http://www.reefs.com/blog/2011/08/17/ap ... val-foods/

I see that Rod is also coming up with a breeders mix, I think I will try that.

Look on Reed Mariculture's website under "APBreed" and you will see Otohime and TDO down to 3 ounce quantities (1 ounce for the A size granules).
