What types of food do y'all like to feed? I see people refer to "good" food to help keep immune system strong, but what exactly constitutes good food? Should I be feeding a variety or is it ok to stick with one thing? I've been feeding super color flakes exclusively. Every other day or so I'll put a piece of an algae sheet in too. Everyone is happy and eating well. Do I need to do anything else like frozen food or different brands?

I feed my tanks the following: carnivore pellets, herbivore pellets, occassional flake, NLS pellets, frozen brine, frozen bloodworms and mysis shrimp. I just picked up a 2.5 lb pack of pemysis which is one of the best frozen foods you can get. Rods food is also quite good. A good variety will keep your fish happy and healthy.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

+1 you'd get tired of steak if you had to eat it every day

Mr x had a thread about making your own food. Its "marine fish food thread" really clever and will save you a ton
