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.

Depending on how much you want to spend, you can feed them barb once in awhile.

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.

hehe I treated my p's about a week ago with about a 7-9" KOI. Just as a treat, my guys rarely get live feeders though

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!!
