I wouldnt do it....I am not an expert on this or anything so I am just shooting from the hip. A while ago people on this board tried to say piranha eat berries and stuff. I dont buy it. Just stick to the diets mentioned on this board including beefheart, shrimp, bloodworms, and (possibly) some live feeders.

thanks x, i remember all that on this board about it so i thought i,d wait for it to settle and ask now to see if anyone has found out anything new on it. ???
any idea on the constant colour changes? they aren,t acting stressed out or anything.

They will eat things like seeds. There's an interesting article at OPEFE about that and some of the effects of it. You don't need to feed them any type of plant matter, you could try if you want.

I heard stories about reds eating beans and cheese (okay, not a veggie, but no meat either
).
I only succeeded in feeding my reds algae tablets, but only very sporadically...
You could try and make your own feeding cubes: just mix all ingredients you want to use (meat, fish, veggies, food supplements etc.), add gelatine and freeze it into cubes...
