First off, anyone whose has questions about food related to breeding fish can ask here.
Here are my questions-
What do I feed to condition cories(panda and peppered) for breeding?
What do I feed the above cories' fry?
What is the best possible guppy diet for breeding colonies?
What is the ideal guppy fry diet?
What does one feed a pair of albino butterfly BNPs to condition for breeding?
What do you feed the fry of said albino butterfly BNPs?
Will a breeding pair of BNPs consider Cory eggs food?

I feed my goldfish gel food mostly consisting of babyfood (mixed veggies) and sardines. Can I make gel food for my neon tetras? If so any recommendations.

I mostly fed my Cory cats a mix of flake, brine shrimp and live tubifex worms (I believe they call them Black Worms today) to condition them for spawning. The fry, once free swimming, were fed live newly hatched brine shrimp as their first food until they were big enough to handle frozen or flake foods. Today's foods might be a good substitute to this but you'll want to compare ingredients. Fish fry need a higher protein based diet than their parents do so I am not in favor of just crushing flakes for fish fry of just about any type.

Hikari makes a good food specifically for Guppies but if you are using something else, you just want to make sure it has a higher level of protein in it along with some vegetable matter as this is important for both digestion and coloration. ( I found this food is also good at coloring up my Bettas.)

I will defer to any of the other Pleco breeders on this site as I have not bred these types before

Hope this helps....
