In the 30 gallon tank I have a two power blue gouramis, couple ballon Molly's and couple platies. She told me that she never feeds her freshwater fish flakes and only give them bloodworms. She also told me that bloodworms will make the fish grow faster and bring out their colors. I was thinking of feeding my fish bloodworms every other feeding and flake in between. Or do i stay with bloodworms?
I use Omega One Color flakes, Frozen/thawed bloodworms and F/T brine shrimp. Live food on occasion.
Not every fish can eat just bloodworms.
And yes, as part of the diet is good. Unless you have certain Africans or Goldfish. Veggie eaters should not have too much protein .
Mollies need some greens. Ours got blanched zucchini and romaine.
