They're not that expensive. They're just hard to find. Check franks aquarium and msjinxed.

Yes! So far they've ate blackworms, white worms, brine shrimp and yesterday I tried feeding them some frozen baby brine and they ate some of that too. but not the female. she wouldnt touch it. Right now, I have a bit of white worms that I am trying to grow out so I can always have a steady supply of live food for them. feeding is the only tough part.

I'm a little nervous about adding too much salt water to the tank. So right now I try and grab a bunch with tweezers.

My dario dario pair only eat frozen brine shrimps. They ignore frozen brine shrimps and frozen bloodworms .

At one point i had to use a tweezer and wave the bloodworms to convince them to give them a try, they took one or two...but they wont eat any frozen bloodworms on the substrate...

One of the pickiest fish when it comes to food imo :P
