In my 40gallon i Have 3 boesmani 1 millennium red rainbowfish, 1 turquoise, and 7 Neon Dwarfs. I feed them some New life Spectrum sinking pellets mixed with some blood worms on the weekends , and im trying to get some veggies in their system by feeding them this. http://www.fosterandsmithaquatics.co...fm?pcatid=4309 and it seems they hate it .

I also feed spirulina flakes, fish flakes, freeze dried shrimp and blood worms. Rainbows eat from the waters surface so they probably will not eat those sinking pellets.

I feed my Celebes and my Dwarf Neons diced blanched okra; very easy to digest for them and very nutrient rich, with the seed's helping in providing protein being an added benefit.
Sometimes I also feed them blanched zucchini, though I am beginning to prefer okra as it has more nutrients.
Before I fed my Celebes vegetables they were not very active and most died but since I started the blanched vegetable diet they now are very active and all are doing superb.
