tetras like: neon tetras, cardinal tetras, rummynose tetras, bleeding heart tetras, black widow tetras, emperor tetras, serpae tetras, rosy tetras, silver tip tetras

or others like: cories, kuhli loaches, celebes rainbowfish, threadfin rainbowfish, rams, killifish, gouramis, hatchet fish, penguinfish, pencil fish, harlequin rasboras, clown rasboras, white cloud mountain minnows, cherry barbs, and danios

these arent all of them either so if there is something else you want im sure its out there.

well just regular flake foods will be fine. i use tetramin and my fish love it. they will also need live or frozen food every now and then to stay healthy. i use frozen brine shrimp but there is also blood worms, live shrimp, and snails.

Couple of fishes in my tank swim to the bottom of the tank and violently hit on the rocks continuously. I noticed behavior more often after I feed them. Is this a normal behavior?

Thanks,

are they hitting the rocks with their head or are they opening their mouths when they do it? they might just be trying to get leftover food out of the gravel. thats what mine do.
