Northfin is good, no need for the others. I don't like flake and find clean water does more for the colors than food. But the northfin already has krill and Astaxanthin, a type of carotenoid responsible for the red-orange colours in some ornamental fish. Animals pigmented with Astaxanthin take on a more natural even colouration.

Northfin has a fry formula.

I feed Cichlid formula, but I have omnivores in my mix, they are not all carnivores.
