On recommendations I started feeding my fish frozen brine shrimp and frozen bloodworms, now the won't eat there flake and freeze dried food, froozen foods only. What do I do here. My plecos eat there wafers and zuccini and the S Dollars eat there lettuce. Is it okay to feed them the frozen food every day

Welcome to Fishlore!

If you only feed frozen once or twice a week they will get hungry and eat the other food It's really not good for them to eat frozen only. a good variety of food ensures a more balanced diet. I would not feed flake at the same time as the frozen.

welcome to the forum

Stop feeding the frozen foods. Fast the fish for 2-3 days and they'll start eating their staple food again.

Just started
+1 on the stopping of feeding frozen foods for a little bit. Try fasting them for a day and offering a very small amount of food, if they do not take it then fast them for another day. Just watch out that you do not over feed them, with them not eating anything you could easily foul the water with overfeeding.

Hunger will win out in the end and they will go back to the flakes.
