the more variety the better, I give my P's crawlers, leeches, crawfish(home bred), platies(home bred), some get pellets(reds/caribes) since they will eat them, silversides, talipia fillets, krill. Rarely are any two feedings the same food for my fish.

Like Nzac said, the more varied the diet is, the better it is.
Feeders aren't a real problem either. There is always the warning for introducing parasites into your tank, though I can't recall many stories of that actually happening due to feeders.
Goldfish aren't a good choice though for they contain thiaminase, what can cause growth and development problems if fed often.

Whole fish is the best because they are getting organ meat as well as bone.
