    Default What type of food for my planned stock?

    Hey guys, so I'm looking around for fish food and I really just don't understand the benefits of flake vs pellet and all that stuff.

    Now I've been looking at brands, so I'm ok with that. What I'm asking about is the actual type of food.
    Why would someone pick flake food over pellet?

    So my planned stock is a bunch of neon tetra, a molly, bolivian rams, and cory catfish.

    Also, I'm in no position to culture my own live food. Can I buy frozen live food?

    I personally find it easier to make sure all the food gets eaten when I feed pellets. Others have other preferences.

    You can also feed frozen foods as the occasional treat, like blood worms or Byrne shrimp

    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    +1 Although I do feed some flake as well, What brands are you looking at?

    I prefer Kens, New life spectrum and Hikari.

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    What you feed also depends on the eating habits of your fish. I've got hatchets, they only eat things that float on the surface.

    In this case a slowly sinking pellet would be good and he'd need some cory wafers. Hikari would be my food of choice.
