Yea I do that too right now, but I want something that doesn't mold and doesnt require me to feed every day/two days. I'll try a oatmeal kibble algae yeast blend.

I haven't found them to be particularly jumpy and yes they have held their color and are somewhat boisterous fish (well compared to the nannostomus). I've had them for 6+ months now I think. All the...
