Hello everyone! I'm somewhat new to feeder insects for my fish but what I've done so far seems to have been met with pretty good success. I did find some feeder insects food in the reptile section of my lps but I'm not sure these would be suitable for fish. I'm seeing lots of homemade recipes but I was hoping for something I could pick up in store or online. I'll include a picture of the kind I was looking at buying.

Aquatic insects and crustaceans typically eat algae and each other. I don't see why crushed up fish foods and algae wafers wouldn't work.

I'm thinking flightless fruit flies in particular

I know the fruit flies in the store eat on a paste like object but I'm not 100% sure what it actually is. I would imagine something with a little sweetness since they are flies that are normally attracted to fruit. You could try crushed up fish food made into a paste and see if that helps. Do you happen to know the ingredients on the Repashy food?

I can tell you that the crickets are just fine eating the fish flakes, you just have to supplement them with something that is moist so they get water (like a wet cotton ball, misting the cricket tank)
