Agree. Good quality flake foods are very nutritious, and livebearer fry are usually greedy eaters.

I personally have switched to mainly New Spectrum flake and pellet foods, with some Omega One and Hikari. I still use the Nutrafin Max sinking pellet food as the corys and loaches seem to really like this.

I base my use on what other members here have posted, and in past threads the New Life Spectrum, Hikari and Omega One always had top billing. Some say NLS is sufficient on its own. I use the other two simply because they provide some type that is unique. I like the Omega shrimp pellets that sink for catfish and loaches, for example. And the Hikari mini floating pellets seem more palatable to my fish than the NLS that sink faster.
