Default Selective Feeding.

Hi all - to make this question easier to answer, I will post the fish I am going to get and what food I believe (from research) they can eat:

Frozen, Freeze Dried, Flaked - SHARK, ANGELFISH, SWORDTAILS, RAINBOWFISH
Live or froozen BUT NOT FLAKED - Black Ghost Knife Fish and Butterflyfish

And really what I was wondering was if I could put flaked food in the tank with the intention of all fish apart from the Black Ghost Knife Fish and the African Butterflyfish from eating them, and would I be able to go without adding live food into the tank?

Thanks all!

Eek! Sorry about that list in my signature - that's an old one which I should really replace, lol! My list is here:

http://www.aqadvisor.com/AquStockIma...:200911251036:

Only i'm not sure about the fire eel in this case.

Also, about the Plecocaine, I was going to get one of them, but they are so big! LOL!

Oh and finally, see if the Black Ghost Knife Fish cannot eat Flaked food, would it be okay for me to add flake food and alternatives into the tank and the BGKF (sorry bad abbreviation, lol) can eat the alternatives... Or would that be dangerous?

LOL!!!!!! Plecocaine is not a fish. It is fish food that is high quality and very good for fish to eat, it brings out their color and keeps them healthy. I have plecocaine and feed it to my fish and they love it.

And you do realize Aqadvisor is telling you your tank is at 235% stocking level? And yeah, from what I hear, Plecocaine is one of the best foods out there...

LOL!!! That makes sense, in that case. Haha, I thought it was just a fancy name for a pleco. Haha, that was funny. And in that case, yeah - i'll be sure to get some of that.

"And you do realize Aqadvisor is telling you your tank is at 235% stocking level? And yeah, from what I hear, Plecocaine is one of the best foods out there..."

I see it, just choosing to ignore it. Haha no, just kidding - It should be at around 185% now but even then it is going to take the fishes a while to grow and I will be moving them into a larger tank when needed.

Thanks for the help everyone!
