Food question: for Elephant nose fish
 
Hey there i have 3 elephant nose fish , black ghost and eel look like snake camo but i have no idea about the name .

these guys all of them eats Bloodworms and Brine shrimp ( FROZEN DEAD)
any way i want to know what the balanced way to feed them every time ?
look at the picture i just bought 1 bloodworms and 1 brine shrimp
okay
what i mean is how do i feed them , when and how many times

the usually i do is in the morning 1 piece of brine shrimp and night 1 piece of blood worms
is that good ?

daphnia and mosquito larvae are good snacks i feed my fish twice a day too. i wait for it to melt then rinse it before popping them into the tank to feed the fish

actually it's recommended to thaw it before adding to the tank. i rinse it so it's not so yucky. you could use a pipet so they don't nip you
