Which food for spiny eels?


I have a Spotted Fire Eel (Mastacembelus erythrotaenia). Which food from your product range do you recommend?

for example, sera granured, sera vipagran and all FD foods (preferably soaked to make it sink better, the method is described in the FAQ "How can I soften dry food and remove the air it contains") are suited for juveniles. Adult fish - M. erythrotaenia grows to about a meter - can additionally get sera cichlids sticks and sera granuar. 

The air is also best removed from the sticks/pellets, because even not very shy spiny eels have some difficulties taking up their food from the surface as their mouth is directed downwards.
