I buy a lot of forzen foods, tubifex, glass, daphia (water fleas) blood worms, brine shrimp etc... the only down side is when I do feed them flake food... Well if fish had fingers I would be number one haha. If you dont like the frozen, can always try the freeze dried. I have even seen articles of people cutting up fresh zuchini and squash even some lettuce for some species of fish. Guy here locally during the summer sets out buckets of water for mosquito larvae to feed his.
I got caught up for a long time in the old "these are tank fish I have to give them this and that" in actuality there is tons of stuff to feed them!
