|Lost a Black Ruby Barb overnight|
After netting the barb out, I went ahead and did a 50% water change, scrapped all 4 sides, and squeezed the sponges. (added a capful of Stability 20 minutes later directly to filter)

I feed the both tanks TetraMin tropical flakes twice a day as a staple. I've always supplemented their diets with frozen bloodworm, frozen krill (they won't eat it unless it's been thawed), and thawed frozen peas. I have now tried the TetraVeggie as a supplement. I'm wondering, should I be giving the TetraVeggie to them more than once or twice a week?

Small Fry with Ketchup
With barbs I'd say yes, or thawed peas more often. Especially the day after the heavy protein feeds.
Since you already have tetraveggie I'd say do regular flake mornings the veggie evenings and peas after the frozen feeds.
Sorry you lost one, hopefully it's just that one, keep an eye on them (as I'm sure you are). Your numbers look fine.

Just incase you were unaware, when feeding peas to fish,
always "pop" the pea out of its casing and feed the meat
of the pea to fish.

I do "pop" the pea out of the shell and then mash it between my fingers and thumb. I have had a time or two that a shell or piece of a shell has fallen into the tank. The barbs still manage to eat it before I can get it out of the tank. I've even tried chasing one through the tank with it in it's mouth. Refusing to give it up! I never feed more than 10 peas at a time. (even though everyone in the tank, will try a nibble or two)
