Actually nature provides tons of food alternatives - infusoria, daphnia, all sorts of worms, etc. The problem is that for some reason he can't contact local hobbyist for help. He needs to learn the hard way - trial and error. I tried to help anyway I can but I don't exactly know his area - can he get to a padi field, natural pond/river, etc. - thus can't guide him 100%. And since he is doing it indoors, he can't use my method of aging the water for a month so micro critters can develop in his tank.
I know he is trying his best to get plants and fry food. He is also trying to make microworms from nature - though I think he has a problem with soil/fields (not sure) because he was confused when I told him he had to bury a potato. He only lacks experience which can not be achieved through reading. He needs to go out to his natural environment and learn where and how to look for/gather whatever he needs.
