What fish do you have? That can help us recommend food. I have gotten the Tetra color, but I prefer these because they were the only flake food that I could find without food coloring.

I don't have any right now but this is the stocking that I will most likely get:
10 Cardinal tetras
6 Guppies
1 Dwarf Gourami
2 German Blue Rams
10 SterbaI Cories (For the cories I will get API bottom feeder shrimp pellets)
I have the API bottom feeder pellets and my shrimp will eat them. About the flakes, I would look at the reviews for all of the flakes and just see what seems like it would fit you best!

The stocking I am deciding to get is:
10 Cardinal Tetras
10 SterbaI Corys
3 Guppies
2 German Blue Rams

The food I have ordered is TetraMin flakes and API Shrimp Pellets. Am I ok with just feeding these 2 foods? If not, what other foods can I order that are not that expensive? And what are some easy DIY food options that I can make?

I feed my fish frozen bloodworms, frozen daphnia, freeze dried tubifex, boiled egg, algae wafers, boiled peas and other vegetables, flakes and pellets. Just feeding prepared bought foods isn't great, variety is best.

You can feed only flake food if it's good quality, it's made as a staple diet so it's all you need to feed.. however, you're fish will love it if you give them some variety and live foods every once in a while. I give mine brine shrimp on occasion and they go absolutely crazy for it
