Hi ,I have recently added 6 Congo tetra to my elephant noses tank, 5 nights a week my elephant noses eat live bloodworm and even though I do this with the lights of my tetras are eating it as well, will they be ok having live food as often? I know it's not good for some fish to eat a lot of meat, I don't have this issue with frozen food just the live.
Thank you

The food being live will not be an issue, but the food itself is an issue. Worms should not be fed this regularly for any fish. Bloodworms should only be fed once a week, live or frozen.

My elephant noses only eat frozen or live bloodworm or brine shrimp I can't do anything about that, but my congo tetra are feeding on flake and pellets it's just when I feed the elephant noses they'll grab what they can.

That's what I'm doing at the moment even with the lights of but the tetras are there, my elephant noses don't get live weekly it's usually when I order them the rest of the time it's frozen which the tetras don't bother.
