I don't specifically feed them anything. I small amounts of flake, bloodworms, brine shrimp, and some sinking algae pellets. Sometimes, some cyclops "goo," and I do have some Repashy I need to start using.
I don't see them eating much "food," per se. Rather, they seem to eat the mulmy biofilm on plant leaves, the rocks, and substrate. I don't really see them as picky or fussy. Shy, maybe. And only the dominant male gets that awesome cobalt blue color.
If you have a mature system and don't over-clean your tank, they are fun to watch dart around and chase one another.
