    Buy shiners from the bait shop if you are going to feed it live fish at all. Gold fish are as bad as it gets. Not only are they full of disease but they can cause hole in the head. Another option to help supplement the pellets is catch nymphs and put them in the tank. Maybe even get a butterfly net and catch mayflies when there is a hatch.

    Feeding them feeder fish is a terrible idea all around. Its a super way to introduce parasites and diesase to the fish. Plus bait shop fish arent bred in the best conditions or kept in the best water. I would avoid them as well. nightcrawlers, frozen food and pellets are going to be your healthiest food.

    I agree. With that said, since so many people like feeding live fish I think the shiners would be the best bet. Not only are feeder gold fish kept in beyond horrible conditions they actually have something (I cant think of the name at the moment) that causes the hole in the head disease. Froze thawed food and pellets are by far the best way to go. As far as night crawlers, make sure they came from somewhere that no chemicals were used to treat a lawn or something like that. You can buy night crawlers, crickets and silk worms from most pet stores if you insist on feeding live food.
