Looks like you are doing just fine! I feed ocean nutrition prime flakes, as well as my own blend of tilapia, scallop, and shrimp mixed with some vitamins.

they will be fine with just the pellets and the nori. I typically grab a bunch of different frozen and randomly feed them, but just typically pellets.

I have a similar fish list. I feed nori, brine, and mysis daily. I also feed four kinds of pellets. I looked for highly rated ones and took a number of different kinds. I figure that the variety would give the fish all the nutrients they need. Right now, almost all of my fish eat, at least, some of everything. A few are not interested in nori.

There are ways to tell if your fish are doing well. A healthy fish will have good color, it will have good fins and kind of spread them, it will be active, alert and confident. It will look a bit on the plump side. If your fish tick all these boxes, you are probably doing things right.

ok i see. Well what kind of pellets (brand) do you guys use? I was looking into ocean nutrition formula 2 pellets, omega one garlic marine pellets, and new life spectrum marine pellets.
but i dont know which one is the best for my fish.

I use new life, but any of those will be fine.
