Most of the aquarium inhabitants seize food from the water column, fish with lower mouth (catfish, tsihlazomy) to get it from the bottom. A full meal – these are living organisms. Applied and dry food consisting of dried organisms, as well as artificial, which in the wild fish do not have (various cereals, meat, cheese, egg yolk, etc.). Diet for young fish is more complicated than for their parents, because the first need is very small and more varied food.
Larvae and fry need algae, ciliates, rotifers, juvenile cladocerans and larvae of copepods. Adults are chopped earthworms, nematodes, the same cladocerans and copepods, insect larvae, and more.
