Variety is always good. The best is the dried seaweed. They are herbivores and need plenty of vegetable matter.

Make your own food. it's much cheaper and cleaner than store bought. I go to the supermarket every so often and buy assorted fresh items, like shrimp, squid, clam, and whatever white meat fish is on sale, like cod, scrod, halibut...
I grind them all up in a food processor and add cyclo-peeze and selcon, and then freeze flat in gallon ziplocks.
About 15 bucks lasts me a year.

I use a whole frozen bar per batch. I usually get about 5 gallon ziplocks filled to the top (rolled out with a rolling pin).
Here's an old recipe-

I don't use the formula A or B any more.

Ive been following the recipe you linked more or less. I think its great. One question though why only white meat fish. Why would say blue fish or salmon not be good. Also would fish roe be ok to add to the mix also, and if so does all fish and roe have to be from saltwater fish? Thanks in advance
