They'll eat just about anything you give them. They're more efficient in consuming prepared foods than the fry of several egg laying fish. Actually much more efficient than even goldfish fry.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Small guppy fry appreciate newly hatched live baby brine shrimp..

Frozen is a good substitute.

They also love crushed freeze dried blood worms and small crushed up prepared foods.
