Some feeding questions

So i love to feed all my pets a varied diet. My gouramis get peas every couple weeks, the plecos get zucchini, my dog gets raw meaty bones and the cat gets whatever she wants.
I was wondering, besides betta pellets and dried blood worms, what else can i add to my betta girls' diet?
Are there any live food I can feed them?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Frozen Foods, Live Foods, Freeze-Dried, Pellets, Flakes, there are a lot of foods out there. Some examples of Live Foods are Mosquito Larvae, Brine Shrimp, Bloodworms, Daphnia, there are a lot. Frozen Foods are much safer from parasites than Live Foods. If you are feeding Live, give it a good rinse first. :)

They could eat Live Daphnia if they can eat Frozen Daphnia. Frozen Daphnia is effective for SBD too! :D

I give Teeney frozen bloodworms 2 x a week as a treat. They are really cheap too- a nice big package at petco for only $5! She gobbles them down like nobody's business :)

My girls love freeze dried blood worms as well. Since adding shrimp i also notice how keen they are to stalk things, so I was hoping some live food could be added to give them some sport
I am definitely going to grow some daphnia, but how does one rinse them? they are so TINY!
