Who in turn got THEIR advice from the Tennessee and Americas. I am just
wondering about the quality of the food. MMNS is feeding a slurry of frozen-thawed
brine shrimp, bloodworms, and some type of ocean planton (I
think). I don't think of FBS as a good staple food. SInce I don't
have any personal experience with this species then I am
encouraged by your observations on "normal" growth.

It makes me mad when I go to all the trouble of having Marta cook up about
a hundred drumsticks, and the guy at the Marineland says, "You can't throw
chicken to the dolphins. They eat fish." Sure they eat fish, if that's all
you give them. Man, wise up.
