(civilized) Fish Food Debate!

What do you feed, why do you feed that?
I feed flakes and shrimp pellets as a staple diet with freeze dried bloodworms as treats. My fish love it and I feel it is good for them. I'd like to feed frozen too as a every other day thing, but have none at the moment. I feel it provides variety. I'd also like to feed BBS and microworms, as they are good for the fish IMO.

I feed flakes, frozen & live bait ( for my elephant nose, but they all like it!) Veggies, shrimp pellets & algae wafers. Try to vary as much as I can

How is it good for them to add in treats exactly? Nutritionally speaking, a good pellet/flake staple should be all inclusive.

I use a large variety of staple flakes (Omega One) and feed freeze dried, frozen and live foods as well. Bloodworms, brine shrimp, spirulina, tubifex, mysis, etc.

I like to change up their diets, supplement with other things. Mainly because I know I wouldn't want the same exact food day in and day out. The fish seem to thrive, so they must enjoy it.

Edit: For the first time today I decided to try some of those larger algae sheets they have at the store. As hoped and somewhat expected, the black mollies are going nuts for it and the gouramis are taking bites too.

I feed Omega-One super color flakes 95% of the time, but every now and then I give them boiled zucchini or bloodworms.

I feed mine spirula flakes with vitamin c, aqua one micro pellets and aqua one vege wafers as the staple and frozen brine shrimp every 3rd day instead of their usual. My betta gets aqua one betta pellets and the frozen brine shrimp when the others get it. I usualy feed frozen blood worms once a week instead aswell just gotta get some more havnt replaced it yet. The more variety the better
