So here's an update on my 14 gallon tank... I finally found some oto catfish and some sparkling gournamies.. So the totall fish in my tank are:

6 neon tetras
3 sparkling gournamies
3 oto catfishs
1 mystery snail..

Was wondering if tropical fish flakes are ok to feed the neeons and gournamies... i been feeding them that lately.. but i guess they wait until the flakes fall from the top and then they eat it.. Is their an alternative food that i can give the neons and gournamies


thanks

as for food, For me i am a type of person who likes to have variety, and i do perform many things with my aquariums as myself. eat variety of foods and treat them once here and there. I use chopped frozen bloodworms here and there. for herbivores i blanch snow peas or lettuce, also i use a product which is called wakame (edible seaweed) but still used for those grazers/herbivores

Yes, variety is the thing. As for dry prepared foods, I use 4 different flake/pellet foods along with 4 different sinking foods (for substrate fish like corys, loachesm, catfish) alternating day to day so the fish have something different 4 days running. At least one of the 4 should be vegetable-based, such as algae, spirulina, kelp; this applies to both flake and sinking foods. Omega One and Hakari are good foods, and these both make various foods, so one can be the "green" base, one shrimp, etc.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

You can also leave water outside and raise mosquito larvae to feed your fish.

i would not recommend mosquito larvae, many can carry parasites and diseases, even to humans, if u wanted to raise something, go with brine shrimps
