what to feed my climbing perch

Hi there. i have two of these neat fish. and they love brine shrimp but my guy at the lfs said not to feed them that too much as brine shrimp are a salt water food and they have too much salt on them and may shut down my perch's kidney's. And i'm pretty sure a climbing perch is also the same thing as a tenapoma (sp) mine are leopard tenapomas. so i cute up some earth worm YUK for them and i just couldn't get it small enough for my little one. My bigger one loved it. they are just babies still with the little "eye" on their tail. thanks.

Give bloodworms a shot. I was reading about Leopard Bushfish (Ctenopoma is the proper genus name) on a different site earlier today, and the consensus was that fresh or frozen bloodworms are a favorite of theirs. Blackworms work too. I'd try guppy fry if I had climbing perch, just because I always have a mess of them.

yes i just bought some feeder guppy's today and my sword is ready to pop in the aquarium with them so they will have some fry to eat and yes they do like blood worms but i wanted to check what every one else thought. thanks.

I'd quarantine the feeders for a couple weeks before offering them to my fish.
