mine love blood worms. I feed them flakes (switching back to crisps though), tubliflex worms, mini-krill, baby shrimp. Might look into live Brine Shrimp in the near future and see how that goes.

I have been using this food called... New Life Spectrum... its small sinking pellets and ALL my fish go crazy for this stuff... I happened by it, by chance. Its kinda expensive, but I think its worth it, especially if you use it in a varied diet. I would recommend it... if you can find it.

I haven't found anything mine don't like yet! In addition to flakes, pellets, shrimp, bloodworms and daphnia I just found out they like cucumber and zucchinI since I saw them trying to steal it from my ancistrus.

They also like the sinking wafers I feed my corys. Here's my big female barb seeming to say "Ummm...are you going to eat that?"
