This is a very difficult diet to sustain properly in the home aquarium, as the fish quickly depletes the supply of such life very quickly, unless the aquarium is in the 125 gallon or bigger size range.
The second problem is that this fish is extremely susceptible to disease, most likely due to its poor overall health from not having the proper dietary needs met in captivity.
You don't want this one.
