My sheepsheads are the same way. They even steal food from the knight and dragon gobies.

All my guys get homemade fish food as their main diet, same recipe for all except the africans, theirs is minus beefheart. They also get seaweed sheets. Everyone gets fresh veggies, frozen foods, shrimp pellets and NLS formulas as supplemental feedings.

If I'm feeling nice (ahem) I rinse some frozen shrimp if we have it and chop it up.

Flake or pellet/sticks as the base diet for all my fish; API, Omega One or Wardley's brands. Veggie/spirulina-based for herbivores, basic flakes or pellets for everything else. Tetra Jumbomin for the big fish, 'cuz that's the only prepared food the oscars will eat (long story!) and it's impossible to keep the RD, redhead black belt and other fish in there from eatin' it once it's in the tank.

Coupla times a week, I mix it up. Blanched veggies (squash, cukes, peas mainly) for the herbivores, frozen mysis, frozen blood worms, a variety of freeze-dried foods, frozen shrimp, etc. The oscars love blanched squash!

I try and feed a varied diet. The puffers get frozen shrimp, clams, or mussels most days, frozen bloodworms some days, and live snails once a week with two fasting days each week. They get freeze dried shrimp as "treats" on occasion. My marbled crayfish gets hikari crab cuisine as a staple with occasional frozen bloodworms as a treat. Sometimes to switch things up I'll give her a shrimp pellet instead of the crab cuisine, and I drop in a little zucchini or cucumber or a small chunk of the seafood I'm feeding the puffers that night at least once a week. The freshwater fish get a staple of shrimp pellets, omega one flakes, and omega one pellets, with frozen bloodworms and fresh zucchini or cucumber about twice a week. I buy most of the seafood I feed at the grocery store instead of the LFS to save some money, and I slice and freeze zucchini and cucumber to keep it around and easy to feed. I also drop in algae wafers for my bottom feeders from time to time. Every once in a whiles hatch baby brine shrimp as an extra treat. And if it seems like I spoil my fish, before I had to rehome my cat I was weaning her onto a raw diet, and when I had rabbits they ate mostly fresh veggies. My pets eat just as well as I do.

I feed a combo of flakes,shrimp pellets, and algae wafers. I think it's ironic that my ghost shrimp go after the shrimp pellets.
