Best food forTigers?

I have some black tigers on the way and am wondering if there are better food options than I have now. I have always used a combination of high quality fish flakes, hikari algae pellets, and omega one sinking pellets as whole food and add powdered spirulina and Mosura Gravidas. Do you think my new tigers will be fine on this food, or should I invest in some of the more exotic foods designed specifically for shrimp?

They'll be fine. Though, you should focus less on the protein-rich foods you're feeding and include things like blanched spinach, zucchini, Indian Almond Leaves and such. That will help round out their diet.

Like Jake said! Plus he makes a good shrimp food that has all that in it if you like feeding just a simple square. But less protein for sure. Also make sure you keep a good GH and low temps with them or you will have bacterial infections up the wazoo
