| || | feeding with flakes, blood worms, brine shrimp
I am very interested in getting brine shrimp, frozen blood worms, and some other treats for my fish. Does anybody know what type/brand name of frozen blood worms are the best and is there any harm from feeding fish frozen blood worms? Also what about live insects? I've heard meal worms are good...And then with brine shrimp, do they need to be acclimated before being put into the tank and do they risk introducing disease to the aquarium? Also I need some plant treats for my mollys, any suggestions? I have hear peas and lettuce but are there any plant based flakes I could use that wouldn't bother the carnivores in the tank if they ate them? And is it ok to switch day to day the type of food (flakes one day, blood worms the next..etc) or should I give them a little bit of both? Ultimately my goal is to ensure the longevity and meet the dietary needs of each different fish that I have...also I'd like to treat them b/c the same flake food everyday seems not good enough for my little guys. Any advice would be great, thanks!
