I'm just curious what the rest of you like to feed your fish?

The common staples for me are:
Frozen Bloodworms by Hikari, Frozen Daphnia by Hikari, and Frozen Cyclops by San Fransisco Bay

I usually just alternate between three, but I feed my fish about twice a week when it comes to frozen foods, other times, I just feed flake, but that's besides the point =P

I don't know what it is about Frozen Adult Brine Shrimp (Hikari), or Frozen Spirulina "infused" Brine Shrimp (Hikari), that I don't like... my fish don't seem to like those two either, so that's why I don't have them.

I've never tried Frozen Mysis Shrimp, or Frozen Beef Heart, so I can't really speak for those.

What about you guys and gals?

Bloodworms and whole krill are usually in my freezer all the time. I also keep whole shrimp in shell for my puffer and tilapia fillets for the bichir. While not frozen I also keep nightcrawlers in the fridge.

Ive also used frozen beefheart but I only buy one package and feed it to real young fish to bulk them up. Its not the best choice as a steady diet. I have used glass worms which the fish seem to take as readily as bloodworms. I never really seemed to have fish like brine but they loved the Spirulina brine also liked the mysis shrimp.

Oooh, glass worms, I don't think I've ever tried those before! Hmm.. wonder where I can find some of those...

Petsmart used to have them but with the changeover to Omega One frozen Im not sure if they carry the old San Fransisco bay brand of glass worm.

Hmm... upon further research, they look a lot like Bloodworms, minus the coloration. I wonder what their pros are, for feeding them to fish, compared to Bloodworms...

Not sure the difference in nutritional value between the two types. scratch

I do like to get my nightcrawlers from Walmart's sporting goods because they carry a 'baby' night crawler that is not giant and does not need to be chopped up to feed. Plus they pack in a fine material that makes it easy to clean out the worms. If Im desperate I buy the full size ones from Fred Meyer but they pack in a more paper like bedding and its hard to squeeze out of the worm.

PE Mysis
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Guaranteed Analysis (from dry weight)
Crude Protein 69.5% min.
Crude Fat 8.35% min.
Crude Fiber 2.75% max.
Ash 5.5% max.


When I had my dwarf pikes, I could hold a cube of this frozen delight in my fingers and all of the pike would be so crazy for it that they'd eat it straight from my hands.

It has the most protein out of any frozen foods I've found. Its a bit more expensive, should not be used as a staple diet, but works amazingly well to get predatory fish away from live food.

Sierra and APfP has them in my area.
