Best food to feed Angelfish?
 
All you Angelfish owners out there. I was wondering what do you feed your fish? What is the best foods to feed them. Also how many different varieties of food do you feed them?
Thanks for your opinions!

I just got five angelfish yesterday. They have had frozen bloodworms and frozen brine shrimp. They seem to love those. Just need/want some more variety to feed them. I will go and look for some cichlid pellets tomorrow. Is there a brand better then another with those?

Plumkin I notice that you have Colombian tetras. Do you have any problems with them being nippy? I had seven before I got my angelfish and they nipped my my GBR's tails. Not to mention at each other on occasion. They were okay with each other at first then I don't know what happen? I soo I rehomed them with a Lfs.

I can't remember which brand I got , just look for the ones that have a color enhancer for fish , I got the really small pellets otherwise they will be too big for the angelfishes mouth

Mine are in a community tank, they are fed flakes, I rotate between 3 different brands, about once a week I give them thawed blood worms, which they wil snatch from my fingers. I also feed them every once in a while another frozen food from San Francisco bay brand called cichlid delight which has turkey heart, brine shrimp and daphnia which everyone seems to like. My angels will also go after the shrimp pellets and the algae discs that I put in for my bottom feeders.

Thanks Barb, I will check into the cichlid delight
