I feed my angel fish NLS tropical fish flakes plus, on occasion, frozen bloodworms and brine shrimp. They are very healthy.

live foods would help 'condition' them for breeding... To be honest though most reputable commercial foods like NLS or Hikari are formulated to meet the dietary needs of most fish... That being said I subscribe to the 'varied' diet method and use flakes/pellets as the staple with frozen, freezedried, & live foods as treats.

many have linked blackworms and tubiflex worms with bacterial diseases though ... frozen bloodworms would be a better choice just in case.
