Rainbow sharks will eat about any aquarium fare. From flake food to pellets to frozen delights. You will need to find a quality flake food(Tetra, Hikari, and others make fine products). You can add diversity and special "treats" by supplimenting frozen brine shrimp, blood worms(both frozen and freeze-dried) a couple of times per week.

my rainbow shark picks all kinds of stuff out of the gravel and out of the cracks in the driftwood. anything else I put in there the pleco or severums eat anyway. he seems healthy enough though :)

Your fish is a bottom dweller so it will not try to come to the surface unless it is used to that habit.

My RBS eats flakes, a new habit he picked up, but mostly grazes algae from the side of the tank and munches on my live plants. I've had him for three months and he seems pretty happy with his diet, very nicely colored very active and fun to watch!

ive only seen my rainbow shark eat a hand full of times over the last year. he is constantly grazing tho and that seems to be more than enough for him.
