fish food for thought

Well I heard from the owner of my favorite LFS said that the staple of a marine fish's diet should be frozen/fresh food, for the simple reason that a fish does not see a dried piece of seaweed floating in the wild. Others say that dry food although not natural, is supplemented with veggies and nutrients that maintain health, and bring out the vibrant colors of marine fish.
What is your opinion and why? What brand do you use? Do you make your own? What vitamin supplements do you use?

There should be a both option. It's best to give your fish a varying diet of good, hearty foods.

I agree. Variety of foods, fresh, frozen, dried...are all important to a healthy fish diet.

I tried to make that option but it didn't show up on the polls.

Live foods are always good. I never feed flakes or pellets

Sorry to be frank, but live food is not practical. It is difficult to keep for long periods of time, and difficult to feed when you're rushing out the door. I think that I will feed live foods once or twice a week.
