A varied diet is best, IMHO. I feed mine the works: frozen blood worms, beefheart, krill, brine shrimp, fresh cucumber & spinach, Hiakri wafers & pellets, etc. They are omnivores and will eat anything! Give them a nice quality varied diet and they will thrive.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Ain't that the truth.

Mine eat everything I have put in there. Snails (that "appeared"), blood worms, sea monkeys, flakes, algae pellets, algae wafers, even blanched asparagus.

..<sigh>.. not to mention most of the leaves on my chameleon plants. ugh...

3 Platies, 1 molly mut, 1 Siamese algae eater, 2 Neolamprologus Facicula cichlids

i find that mine really like shrimp pellets too,just
to add to what everyone else feeds theirs,oh yeah and catfish pellets.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
