Diet & Nutrition:  Omnivore; needs a varied diet of frozen, live, and vegetable foods. They should be provided a varied diet of live/frozen bloodworms, Artemia, and Tubifex worms. Fruit and vegetables should be an occasional treat. Cucumber, blanched spinach, and melon will be accepted and can be an important part of a varied diet. While they are able to feed on sinking catfish pellets, this should not be their only source of nutrition.
