    Fruit flies are a good option.

    Not sure I'd feed earthworms only because you'd have to cut them up and that might make your tank water pretty gross.

    Earthworms are fine just get the smallest worms you can. Clean any un eaten food asap afterwards. Also buy them the ones outside could carry insecticides and harm your fish. But I feed all mine worms. Puffer, eels turtles, crawfish even the goldfish will sneek a bite when possible

    I used to feed my Oscar and Jack Dempsy earth worms, I would buy the cans they sell for fishing and give him one every morning and night. Not sure how easily tiger barbs could eat an earthworm.

    Lol the best part. Only non aggresive eater I have is snails and goldfish. I love the viciousness when eating.
