I feed mine flake food and they skim the top and eat. But there also scavengers so they may sometimes find a bite or two.

My peppermints eat anything and everything I feed my tank. lol pellets, flake, carnivore foods everything. Its quite amusing to watch them scurry out grab a piece of food and then scurry away with it. I wish I had more of them lol
