True. Also if I'm to lazy to make a new batch ill feed rods food that stuff is just as good as mine but a little on the expensive side

I go by the same theory as I do when feeding my dog and cats, only more so since each fish species has slightly different diet requirements. That theory is that animals in the wild eat a large variety of foods, many of which we probably don't know about, so no one food can have everything needed for nutrition. The best thing to do is to feed as wide a variety of foods as possible. Plus, by varying foods, your fish don't get so used to eating one particular food they refuse to eat anything else. If that happens and the food they are used to eating suddenly becomes unavailable or discontinued for some reason, you are in trouble.
I feed a couple different kinds of flake, and a variety of frozen insects (bloodworms, shrimp, mosquitoe larvae,..)

I feed my little ones tropical flakes, freeze dried tubifex worms, baby shrimp, dried blood-worms, veggie rounds, zucchini, peas, and I give them the frozen brine shrimp, blood-worms, and veggie cubes sold by petsmart (they call it the lunchbox variety).

Seconded.

I primarily feed my fish Omega One flakes, along with shrimp pellets, tubifex worms, and frozen bloodworms on occasion. I provide algae wafers each night for my pleco (cories eat some of it as well), and hand-feed my dwarf frogs frog/tadpole bites, and occasionally frozen bloodworms.

I do Hikari micro pellets and veggie wafers, Fluval shrimp granules, and frozen bloodworms, brine shrimp and mosquito larvae. I also feed them live brine shrimp (hatched) and mosquito larva a few times a year.
