Best food for tetras?

I added a school of six to my cycled 10 gallon today (yay!) and I bought omega one freshwater flakes to feed them. Is this a good brand? Or should I opt for something else? I also have bloodworms to feed them.

Omega One is a good company. I use the flakes for my community tank, which currently houses 3 tetras (had 10, but many didn't make it) along with the mollies and platies. As long as you crush the flakes up enough, the tetras will eat them happily. I also like to throw in a meal of f/d blood worms, and a meal of brine shrimp in between flake feedings to supplement.

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.
