Where i suggest NOT to use krill with frontosa, for Victorians i do.
Vics have multiple colors, so they will need foods that have both spirulina for blue/black/green, and krill for the reds/oranges.

Ive had issues Feeding Spirulina To Some of my Vics That never ate it.
If you are having that Issue You can Use HBH Supersoft Spirulina. They eat that up, even if they wont touch the Flake.

some reason they love HBH because when I feed them with it they would go crazy. Now I'm using spirulina because I have so much of it.

I mainly fed veggie flakes' but I also put in a little live black worms here and there. I do make sure I give a pellet food once a day. I don't know why but I have good luck when I use pellets. I think it just take time to digest.
When I have fry they get the micro pellets, I have found that the fry will just waste away if not givin a good diet and the pellet keeps them happy.

Salad, cucumber, frozen peas, Spirulina flakes
Then shrimps from the supermarket. But also frozen Artemia and white + black mosquito larvae, Krill, as well as insects what i can find in nature and in our flat, Guppys and so on..

i use Aquadine systems and HBH veggie flake as well as a homemade mix of spurlina/peas/spinich/greenbeans/shrimp/a few bloodworms/and daphina
all mixed up in a blender...put into ziplock bags and flatenout into a "pancake"
and freeze...you can make as much as you want ....equal parts of all except for the shrimp and bloodworms..i use half the amount ...you dont want to much "meat" in there...to avoid bloat

just break off a piece and toss it in the tank and watch them go wild :)
