Hi I'm in process of setting my tropical tank..
I hopefully will get pleco/cory, tetra, gourami/angelfish
Do I need to get different food for different type of fish or they all can eat same food?

I have 25 l with platy only so never had to think about it before..

cheers.

All fish require a varied diet...Dont just feed flakes everyday...

Feed different foods regularly...... Live food, Frozen food, Blanched vegetables, Flakes, Pellets, Spirulina, Wafers, Bloodworm...The list goes on....

Think of it like this....Would you like to eat macdonalds fries every day for the rest of your life???? Probably not...And also you would probably end up dead after a few weeks anyway even if you did love eating macdonalds fries day in day out...

Fish like humans require nitrition in various forms to stay healthy....

On a side note New Life Spectrum foods are amazing as a staple! But not exclusively!

Vary the diet! Thats the secret....

There are some high quality foods with a nutritional balance meant to meet all of the needs of your fish. These are often species specific and should still be supplemented with other foods if at all possible.

There are some commercial breeders using nothing but the same feed for years on end. Many of them supply aquarium shops around the world. When money is the main object this sort of thing becomes common.
