    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.

    Mine actually go to the surface and follow the pellets as they fall and when there are no more at the surface they get the ones that have fell well my big ones not my neon dwarfs. Where you talking about the same flakes i poseted a link to ? it just seems when i put them in the pick at it and leave it alone like im going to throw something else into the tank and once the realize that im not then they go to eat them but this will b like minutes after and i thought that was bad to leave flakes in the tank for more than a minute so thats why i was trying to get something else. Are there sprulinia pellets that you know of so i could try that ?

    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.
