I want to make sure my fish get the right foods they need to stay healthy. I have mollys, swordtails, and barbs. Now I feed them Tetra flakes, veggie flakes, brime shrimp, and bloodworms. Is there anything they should be getting.

That's a pretty good mix. There are many different kinds of frozen foods out there. Frozen brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, and krill are some of the ones my fish enjoy. Your swordtails (and I'm sure the others) would probably enjoy some algae wafers from time to time. I know mine eat them like crazy. :-)

Some live foods can't be beat as well ! I treat mine to Black worms a few times per week, however you must be careful with their maintenance. Kept in a cool place such as your refrige crisper and their water changed every day keeps them clean and tasting good to your livebearers and tetras. There relatively cheap , problem is many of your LFS don't carry them. Live brine shrimp are also a great dietary supplement !

You could also add some occasional fresh veggies, such as peas or cucumber. They'll love nibbling away at them!

I bought some hIKARI algea wafers and all of my fish love them. I dont know who likes them more my barbs or my livebearers. But when I feed it to them they will all fight for them by nipping and chaseing the other fish away. Two of my fish get scard and hid. Is this ok. I have 9 fish in a 20 gallon tank and feed them 2 wafers cut in fours.
