    If you take a look at my other thread you will see I'm having a lot of trouble getting my golden dwarf to eat. It seems he came straight from the ocean so he may still be accustomed to live food. I'm desperate to get him to eat (I got him Dec 21st) so I'm willing to try live food even if its more expensive.
    Whats a good fish I can try to feed him? I know to stay away from goldfish and such.

    Try the ghost shrimp - there are saltwater varieties, if you can get 'em, freshwater in a pinch.

    (I'd use peppermint shrimp before cleaners, I think...)

    Any shrimp would do. But $10/25 for a peppermint/cleaner shrimp would be crazy unless you got cash to burn. Ghost if you can find them

    They aren't very good fish hunters.
