They are scavengers, but will not thrive without a steady food source. They will eat any leftover fish food, veggies that are blanched, algae wafers, etc. However, as someone who used to keep Endler's together with shrimp, be very aware of how much the fish are eating vs the shrimp. There are very few fish that are totally "shrimp safe". A guppy will take a run at a shrimp if it feels like it could get a meal!
