I have used goldfish and I am trying to move away from them based on diseases they carry. I have a LFS that has weekly sales on other fish and I have been buying them. I usually only feed my Ps live food once a week.
I fed my P a barb once. I think it was a tiger barb? It had a big black eye spot on it's tail. I bought it just to see how long it would last. I put it in with about 8 other rosie reds. And it was the last one to die. About 4 days I think it lasted. The reds maybe 12 hours. I usually only use rosies when I give it feeder fish. Sometimes I'll throw in something that looks fast.
Its true, feeding feeders everyday isnt really healthy for your Ps. Theres no other kind of aquatic animal that I would spend money on (besides ghost shrimp and goldfish) to feed my P. Then again, Im also thinking about feeding them Kois!!
