I like flake food the best, since any fish can eat it, even fry. And because its inexpensive, and I like giving my fish Bloodworms, and Crumbles. I don't really like crumbles all that much, since they sink right down to the bottom, and smaller fish can't eat them beacuase they're too big for their mouth

I use tropical crisp, frozen brine shrimp, and sinking shrimp pellets.

If you mean Brand-wise, I prefer Omega One overall, but will occassionally feed Nutrafin-Max colour enhancing flakes.

As for type, flake is the choice for all my tetras/rams/rasboras/one of my bettas, shrimp pellets and algae discs for the bottom feeders... once a week everyone gets frozen food instead of the regular stuff though, either brine shrimp or bloodworm, I alternate between the two.

My other betta refuses to eat anything but Omega One pellets or frozen bloodworm, so yeah. hehe.

I want to try the omega one stuff, but I can only find it on teh interweb and I already have fish food. The flakes are Tetra tropical crisp, I do not know what the pellets are but they are packed in a box so I can't look, and the brine shrimp are Sally's Sanfrisco Bay brand frozen brine shrimp.

NLS (New Life Spectrum) all the way! Ocean Nutrition's flake food isn't bad, either. My sister's betta has refused to go back to betta pellets after tasting NLS... greedy little fellow.

My LFS doesn't have a lot of that stuff. I like Hikari, most of my fish get that. Plus live food sometimes...

My Endler's fry absolutely adored TetraMin Baby and they refused to eat Hikari Micro Pellets for the days after I stopped giving them it... Now I have to feed them the Tetra stuff again even though they are juveniles! They love it. Very Happy
As for the bigger fish, all the fish in my 70 litre eat Tetra Guppy - even the Rams! All my fish in my 240L eat anything really, a lot of frozen food is what they like. Cool
