They aren't very picky. Tinfoil barbs do fine eating quality pellets with the other foods like blood worms and brine shrimp also being part of their diet. Are you planning getting Tinfoil Barbs? Make sure you do research because a 75 gallon would be the smallest you could keep them in. (preferably bigger)

They will eat most of anything. You can feed bloodworms and earthworms. They will also eat smaller fish that fit in their mouth so you have to be careful when stocking your tank.

Most fish will eat any insect that lands on the water surface. Wingless fruit flies are ideal because they can't fly so they will get eaten quickly.

Click the shaded name to see the profile, it mentions wild food and aquarium foods. It does not mention specific insects because most of us don't know what insects might live somewhere on the other side of the globe.
