What to feed?

My dad just recently brought home 2 striped damsels for me and i was wondering what is the best food i can give to them. Right now i am feeding TetraMin Tropical Flakes. And i also have some freeze dried bloodworms. what do you recommend i feed or is this good enough just mix it up so they get a healthy diet.

Variety is best. Damsels are omnivores, and should have both meats and veggies in the diet. There are a large variety of flake, freze dried, and frozen products at your LFS that will work, or you can make your own frozen food alot cheaper.


If you do buy your own, stick to buying the smaller packages, so everything stays fresh while you're using it, and you can more quickly rotate in more types of foods. Try to stick to items of saltwater origin, as they have diffrent ammino acids than freshwater foods.

Def get some frozen or make your own to mix it up a little.

Whatever you feed don't forget the suppliments (I sound like my chiropractor). I mix all my frozen and flake with Selcon, Vita-Chem and Garlic Extreme and let is soak a bit before feeding the tank.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

Marine variety frozen packs is something to look into. It will offer meats and veggies.
