Well...in the ocean they eat neither, so you want to use a wide variety of food for all your fish to try and give them the nutrition they need. I feed a homemade food that has many different types of raw seafood as well as nori a high quality flake and supplaments...all my fish go no=uts for it

RDA For Fish

Your first task is to find out what recommended daily allowance/food is for whatever fish you buy. Reefrunner has proffered very good advice. Many lfs stores will be able to provide with with good products to choose from. Of course, feel free to give them treats now and and again. Mine are fond of brine shrimp.
