Congratulations on your great purchase. I love my angelfish they are such great characters. Mine are fed a mixture of what everybody has mentioned, but once a week I also put in a small amount of peas (depending how many fish are in the tank). I use frozen ones, boil them for a couple of minutes, cool them, squish them and remove the skins. Helps to stop them getting constipated.

So I went to petco today. The only foods I could find was Hikari Cichlid Cichlid Staple in a bag. It is floating pellets. I also found some frozen beefheart. So along with that I have frozen bloodworms and brine shrimp. Is a good variety?

I'd go with Hikari staple, some sort of algae-based flake (might be sold as livebearer food) and some freeze-dried foods.. like bloodworms.

I prefer to feed fish foods similiar to what they would eat in the wild... Have you ever heard of a discus or angelfish devouring a cow?

No I have never heard of that Redchigh.
So you are saying freeze dried is better then frozen food?

Lol I agree with redchigh , although I have fed my kribs beefheart whilst getting them conditioned for spawning but I'm sure brine shrimp or similar would have done

Soo frozen beefheart is out. They don't like it and will not eat it. Also I have to get some smaller size pellet. The ones I got are too big. I thought they were small enough but nope not the case. So I will save them till they get bigger.

Yeah, I am right there with you. I don't do the beef heart thing with mine either. Partly because I don't wish to handle such things. I feed mine, Bloodworms, Mysis shrimp, Krill, Hikari Tropical Micro Wafers, Tetra color crisps, Brine Shrimp and the occasional algae wafer that isn't meant for them but they pick at it anyway. They are big beautiful and vibrant colors so... I am hoping they are healthy. They certainly look it.
