I'm thinking of getting some glass catfish, but I'm not sure if they will eat the new life spectrum food that I feed my other fish, this is the fish food I use http://www.thatpetplace.com/Products/KW/new%2clife%2cspectrum/Class//T1/F29JX+0259+0004/EDP/32532/Itemdy00.aspx

Will they eat this? If not, is there any new life spectrum food they will eat, because I really like this food for my other fish.

I would worry about mixing them with the Cichlids you have in there. Glass Catfish like to be in groups, come out at night so like a darker aquarium and don't like active fish around them and prefer planted aquarium. From my books they like to eat live foods such as tubifex,white worms,daphnia etc

Well the cichlid I have is the blood parrot cichlid. Will they do fine with the glass catfish?

Also about the food for the glass cats I heard they eat flakes also, and planet catfish says they eat prepared foods but didn't specify what type of prepared foods.

I had my glass catfish with my rainbow fish. They are OK. They kind of like soft water and eat flak food without any problems. I'm not sure they can go after the pellets you have there or not.
