    My guppies don't care for my omega flake food, will eat my sera flake but pick at it. I do feed frozen brimp shrimp and blood worms (love this). I like to feed flake food for their first feeding. I feed twice a day. Would like to hear your idea's for what brand of flakes to use.

    I use Tetramin flakes and Aquarian sinking pellets for my loaches and shrimp. They don't seem to like Hikari algae wafers very much.

    Hikari frozen foods (I have bloodworms) are a favorite in any fish, but the all-time best food for smaller fish is...drumroll please...

    Mosquito larvae (and adult mosquitoes and eggs, but NEVER feed pupae, they'll choke the fish)! Actually, any small live food would work, and I've heard that brineshrimp are good if you want your fish to grow. Full of carotenes, you know.

    If you're feeding thawed frozen foods often they may well refuse flakes.
    I feed mostly all Omega One foods.

    Agree with shawnie fast them then feed only Omega one foods and they will eat them. Omega One has some really healthy things in their foods.

    and mine looooove their Hikari sinking wafers. they atack them like its the 1st time they've eaten in years every time :clapping:

    I use omega one and my fish love it. I haven't used anything else recently either. i use their veggie wafers too. I have the Hikari first bites for my fry but i think they prefer pulverized omega one flakes.

    For me, it always takes a few days when introducing new foods to my fish. They get used to the routine with the old food, and find the new food strange. I gradually introduce more and more of the new food over a week. Once they figure out the new stuff is food, they'll go for it.

    I mainly use Omega One, alone with some other high quality earthworm and spirulina flakes. All my fish love the Omega One now.

    Well, I feed them TetraMin also, and one day a week frozen brine shrimp. The other day some veggies, and sometimes soak the flakes with garlic juice they love it..
