Should I feed something else?

I have flake food for most fish, and algae and bottom feeder pellets, but I notice that other people seem to feed numerous other things and I am wondering if I should be suplementing this food with something else. My fry get freeze dried shrimp and the other seem to like this... should I feed it to everyone?

Fish are just like people-- they get tired of eating the same thing, over and over.

It's a great idea to have different types of food and rotate amongst them with your fish. You can try different flakes, pellets, freeze-dried, and even frozen foods. Keep it varied and your fish will be happier.

I feed my fish shrimp, krill, bloodworms, flake, shrimp pellets, pellet food, and algae wafers.

I feed all sorts of veggies and fruits. In the cichlid tank last night I put a chunk of watermelon. They loved it! [url=http://www.aquariumadvice.com/article_view.php?faq=2&fldAuto=42] This [url] article has great info on how to feed fish veggies and fruits.
