Default Trophs and gobies

I have a tank with both trophs and gobies that I have been feeding with spirulina flake. Would like to try a different food but, don't know what is best for both to eat.
Any suggestions?
Thank you,
Cricket

Spirulina flake? Sera herbivore pellets to me are also very good. Change the diet slowly if you do to avoid bloat.

They both thrive on the same type of diet so no special attention needed other than remaining on a diet catered towards herbivores.

The sera pellets look great but, I am finding it impossible to buy in U.S. Thank you for your reply.

I know this is not going to make me popular on this forum but, I am afraid to feed the NLS. I keep going back to the idea of trying it since it is on this site so many times but, for now haven't been able to try it.

I keep my breeding pair of gobies in their own tank. Mainly Dainichi FX pellets with occasional feeds of spirulina flakes and NLS thera+. Same menu as the trophs, but trophs more feeds of spirulina flakes.
