I feed my tetras regular flakes and freeze dried brine shrimp. But they are slowly learning to go after the sinking pellets I feed to the rest of the fish as well.

NLS Small Fish pellets, live blackworms and grindal worms, frozen bloodworms and glassworms, large-grade golden pearls...my tetras aren't picky at all.

You are getting one (!) tetra? You'll need at least a small group of 6 for them to be happy and display their natural behavior.

High-quality flake food should be the staple. Freeze-dried stuff and frozen food are good supplements. Some stores offer frozen daphnia, which is great for small species (larger fish tend to ignore them).

NLS small and growth formula as a staple, alternating with freeze-dried brine shrimp, tubifex, frozen bloodworms, adult brine and mosquito larvae. For my plecos, I feed mostly the same but use carnivore pellets by Hikari as the staple.

I have some LFS bought flake and flake from Brine Shrimp Direct. I feed them twice a day (both evening) alternating between the two. Also have some granular food the sinks much faster and add a little of that several times a week to be sure the bottom feeders get fed. Tetras usually spit out the granular since it's a little big and still hard and dry when they get to it.
