Hmm yeah i give my guy freeze dried daphnia,blood worms,brine shrimp (once a week,one of them),plus his pellets on the other days. I also got this stuff called wardley tropical crumbles. He loves it! It does sink though,so i drop in one at a time so he doesnt have to chase it down lol. My cories love that stuff too. Also good to know about the pea thing. Its like all over the internet to do that,so im sure alot of people do. But after reading dramaqueens thread and the daphnia working on her fish,ill stick with that too!
