The reasons to obtain live food for your freshwater aquarium are many. Fish do not eat processed food in the wild; most hunt for a living. Eating other creatures is natural for them, so if you want to see your fish behave as they might in the wild, give them live food. In captivity, some tropical fish will not breed unless they are given live food. In fact, some fish won't even eat food unless it is alive. It's just a requirement to elicit a feeding response in those fish (example: , the Pike Livebearer).
