I've always used good ol' TetraMin but I know there are others that people must use. Just interested to know what food you use, why you like it/don't like it and for what fish.

Tetra Prima pellets and flake (bagged from a seller on ebay £6 for 3 big bags)
King british catfish algae pellets (cos I bought them when I bought the tank in 2006)
Frozen bloodworm (5 blister packs for a tenner from P@H)
Mix of flake from Wilko (£2 for a flowerpot sized tub. I mix the Tetra flake into it)
Peas

Aquarian Flake
Nutrafin Spirulina
Variety Sinking Wafer (rarely now because my barbs pounce and chew them like gobstoppers)
Tetra Fresh Delica Brine-shrimp etc. (handy alternative to frozen and the fish love these)
Veg - cucumber (very popular), cooked shelled peas
Freeze-dried daphnia & bloodworm
Frozen - don't get these as often as I should

I've use Tetramin as well although I also get Aquarian sometimes because the local sainsburys sell it! Also frozen brineshrimp and bloodworm. I've found that my fish will only take daphnia if it's live and they refuse all freeze dried food. Do I just have fussy fish?

Tetra prima granules
Tetra min flake
Hikari Algae wafers
King British Algae Wafers
Aqua One Vege Wafers
Ocean nutrition frozen brine shrimp and blood worms (I now cook these before using as I think they might have been responsible for giving my guppies internal parasites :twisted: )
Various Veg (mainly cucumber and courgette but generally a little bit of whatever I'm having!)

Though since my new set up I've stuck to the dried/prepared foods until the fish are a bit more settled.

I use a mixture of granules and pellets and fry food when I'm being lazy - no particular brand though, whatever I've got. Other times I buy a lot of live food - I really notice the difference in colours on my fish and my cories are much more active when they're getting plenty of wriggling bloodworms and tubifex! :D

Wow hat's opened my eyes!

I've just been feeding dry flakes, dried blood worm, catfish pellets and algae wafers.

All dried feeds, maybe I'll try some live/frozen foods, see how they react to that!

I have fed veg too but only once or twice and now thinking about it they did like it!!
