Variety is a good idea as it ensures a balanced nutrition, and some fish do prefer some foods over others. Omega One is a good brand, as is Hikari and New Life Spectrum. Not saying Tetra isn't I use it now and then, but I stay mainly with the others mentioned. These manufacturers also make several sinking foods. One food should always be veggie-based, like algae, spirulina or kelp base. Or some actual vegetables, like blanched yam and zucchini.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
