Some don't care much for the frozen, but most of them gobble it up. Characins generally like it (tetras, pencilfish), as do the rasbora and pygmy gouramis in my SE Asian setup. I think the corys and loaches eat it, though it's hard to tell because it doesn't readily sink and it's so small I can't see it on the substrate, but the activity of the fish tends to suggest to me that they do eat it if any gets down there.

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]
