best feeders are ones that have been quarentined first for disease and parrasite reasons. Strictly feeders alone is not the best way to go as far as nutrition so I would recomend feeding wahtever you can supply cheapest (for wallets sake) and not to feed them just feeders, but rather mix the diet up some :D

In general, goldfish are the least healthy feeders, because they seem to be the most neglected fish around, even at lfs's....

another reason for this is that goldfish food lacks the nutrition that tropical fish food contains, therefore the goldfish have less nutrients.

no it ain't stupied but also b.shrimp doesn't have alot of nutrition. alot of people feed flake food to the feeders.the best way to go is as snow has suggested mixs up there diet .try beefheart which is very good to bulk them up also krill which will bring out good deep color on them.
