Gday mate and :welcome

Best foods according to me:

Commercial: Hikari Lionhead & Sera Goldy Royal. Heard that Pro-gold is great also, but real hard to find here in Australia

Live: I never fed live food, but heard that tubifex worms are great and i'd really like to feed my fish brine shrimp if i got the chance.

Natural: Veggies like zucchini, duckweed, peas, and whole other things.

Algae that grows naturally in ur tank

Frozen bloodworm, frozen brine shrimp

hope that helps

Don't discount gel food either :) Many of us here make our own and toss in all kinds of healthy fruits and veggies! There are recipe's on the forums under "food" take a peek :D

Actually, they're nicely textured with right amount of juice inside. A wonderful combination :lol:

They arent that gross. But if you pick'em up they leave that nasty stuff on your hands. I dont think cutting them up is practical. It would just be too messy for that. Worms arent gross. But cutting them up is.

Edit: Uh, Riz, are they still considered live food once you cut them into "croutons"?
