However, always remember to clean the tank regularly so the rest of the mashed vegetable won't make your tank get dirty.
4. The living food
Rainbowfish is a type of omnivore fish. So, in the diet program, you can feed them with a meat of living food, like living worms, shrimps, etc. But, in certain times, they won’t refuse the frozen foods –in case you don’t have time to feed them with the living food.
