Best OEBT food?

I have some tigers that just came today. They're beautiful black tigers. I normally feed my shrimp a combination of spirulina powder, Mosura Gravidas, Hikari algae pellets, Omega One fish flakes, Omega One sinking pellets, and a home made food that is spirulina, brine shrimp eggs, peas, and spinach.

Does this sound like it will continue to work for me with the black tigers, or should I look into the more expensive specialty foods?

I think what you're feeding will be fine for them.

I hope you are not running CO2 on this tank, black tigers and OEBT are very delicate still and would not do well with CO2 or Fert dosing

No, different tanks. I have some amazon frogbit and asian watermoss growing in it. I was planning on dosing a half dose of Flourish comprehensive, would that be a bad idea?

I would not dose any fertz that may have nitrates in it
