I got rainbow snakehead (12-13cm).
I feed him bloodworms. I want to know what else they will eat because its hard to find bloodworms everyday. Will he eat pellets which is used for catfish?

Snakeheads will eat anything that fits in their mouth. You can feed them on prawn/ shrimp, fish, octopus, squid, mussel/ clam meat, any sort of insect or insect larvae (as long as they aren't poisonous or contaminated with pesticide). Basically any sort of food that fish eat, snakeheads will eat, including dry foods but it might take them a while to work out what dry/ pellet foods are.
