I'm curious to see what everyone's (or your fish's) favorite

I'm curious to see what everyone's favorite live food?

This can be for both fish and corals.

Looking to expand my knowledge and see what people really do like to use, rather than what magazine articles say.

If I have to feed live food, enriched ghost shrimp would be it. Well, that and maybe nauplii.

my fish love Spectrum Thera+A pellet food.

krill / mysis shrimp is good too. I feed pellets day 1/mysis day 2/pellets day 3/krill/pellet/mysis in that order, and they definetly get more excited about the spectrum.

Never fed Live food... Not something that the LFS carry in my area.
I use a varity of flake and Nori sheets 1-2 times a week, I also use Mysid and brine shrimp mixed together.

I also use the DT`s for my corals. Dont feed anything live to my fish either. What do you have in your tank that needs live foods?

I use DT's Phytoplankton as well and sometimes live brine shrimp for the fish (and sometimes corals), but I usually feed frozen squid, brine, and mysis to my fish.

Mainly out of curiosity.

Our club is looking for projects that a local high school science team can do. The school also has numerous marine/freshwater tanks and food can be a bit expensive. Growing your own is a lot cheaper and more educational.

Thanks everyone. I appreciate the help.
