I agree on the frozen foods. There are several different brands that are very good. You can also make your own out of fresh seafood that has been ground up in a blender and frozen. That might be a bit more trouble than you want to go to for just one fish though.

the marine cuisine by S.F. bay brand looks like good stuff.

beyond a blend like that, are there any particular ingredients that you'd recommend, for example krill or brine shrimp?

make sure whatever you get is vitamin fortified or gut loaded, as brine shrimp are pretty much nutritionless without that. krill is probably too big for the little guy. mysis shrimp is also a good choice, for making your own i add mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, zoe marine vitamins by kent marine, finely miced cocktail shrimp, nori, and some flakes.

It is very good stuff and my fish love it. Just make sure you thaw it out and drain off the packing juice first. The packing juice can go a long way to adding nitrate to your system.

I use NUTRAFIN MAX MARINE COMPLETE FOOD SLOW SINKING MORSELS to feed all my fish. They like it becuase it sinks slowly and unlike flakes expands into a little chunk of meat. All my fish love it. And every other day i put some frozen brine shrimp.
