I can't speak to food value, but I like the natural approach. I use fruit flies (vestigial wings so they cannot fly) which I culture myself. Very easy to culture and harvest, but I must admit that the occasional fly does manage to escape into the wilds of my plant/fish room (and sometimes they do show up on the pings or drosera). I dump the live flies from the culture into a zip bag and then freeze them. For feeding, I just dump some of the flies into a small sample container and use a moistened toothpick to feed. I also use a very weak solution of maxsea on occasion, applied lightly, but never on young or smaller plants .
