Thanks for all the info by the way ;)
You're most welcome. Now, here's some more info!

I currently use frozen, usually twice a week. When I tried the freeze-dried, nothing would eat it (literally, no fish in the tank would touch it). I was skeptical about the frozen but decided to try it (I suspect that like you I have read that it is a worthwhile food).

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.
