What do you feed your rams?

I got a pair of bolivian rams.

Currently I feed them shrimp pellets (which they enjoy) , flakes (which they do eat), algae wafers (for the cory cats which the rams touch but not really), some krill , freeze dried brine shrimp and bloodworms

Anything else that you guys recommend?

55 Gallon FW,Eco-complete Substrate
Equipment : In-line heater, RENA XP3 filter, 130 Watts Fluroscent
Plants - x Cryptocoryne wendtii brown
Fish : 10 Tiger Barbs, 2 Blue German Rams, 2 Bolivian Rams, 1 Rainbow shark

I have GBRs, and so far their favorite seems to be the NLS community pellets.

In the DC Metro Area? Check out GWAPA and WAMAS

NLS and vegetables
Just because I am working at Petco does not mean I am a sell out, they are still an evil empire, that I am trying to make better.

NLS cichlid formula. Maybe some live blackworms, or some fresh veggies.

If it looks like food, my rams will go after it. I have yet to see them discourage or turn up their noses at any food (they do love peas and spurilina wafers). You have a well balanced diet there so no worries.

I feed both my GBR's Omega One flake and either frozen bloodworms or brine shrimp once a week.

When I first got them they wouldn't really touch flake food but after feeding a mix of flake/bloodworms I finally got them to accept flake food and they eat it readily now.
