    I guess one of the best things to do is just try stuff! I'd buy live brine shrimp or anything similiar. I've heard good things about daphnia and mosquito larvae though.

    The sharks are all omnivorous so if you're feeding them all live foods be sure to supplement with algae wafers and veggie flakes :)
