I just picked up a 3" SAE.  Pretty big but I am hoping that it will last
longer.  I think that my SAE's are just starving to death.  What kind of
food is good for Tetras and will sink to the bottom for the SAE?  Right now
I am using flak food and the Tetras are eating it before it can reach the
bottom.  I feed every other day.

I use RO water.  The water here in Minnesota is very hard.  The water sits
for about a week before I actually use it so if there were any chlorine or
anything like that is should have enough time to distill right?
