In the profiles (which I wrote, most of them anyway) "prepared foods" is intended to include flakes, freeze dried, whatever. If the species is really fussy, it will point that out.
I too have a group of this fish in one of my tanks, and they readily eat flake foods and micro pellets. At least I assume they are eating it--this is all that tank is fed (a variety of 4 flake and pellet foods) and they wouldn't be alive [and spawning peridically] after 2 years in the tank if they didn't.
Frozen daphnia would be ideal if you can get it; I can't anymore. Frozen bloodworms as a treat is fine.
