Feeding my figure 8 puffer

What is a food that i can steadily buy and feed my figure 8 for the remainder of his life. I have noticed a list of about 8 things to feed him. Which one will be suitable for the rest of his life?

You really can't get by with just one. At the very least, you need live snails and one other thing (and I'll leave it to those more expert than I to tell you what the best staple would be), and you should probably rotate through 4 or 5 different things. It will improve health and color if you do it that way.

The reason I ask is because I "had" about 15 guppies in the tank with 2 cichlids and a rope fish. None of the guppies were eaten for 5 days straight. The reason i bought the cichlids (not only color) was because i saw the pet store guy throw a few in the tank and saw about 15 cichlids allllll jumped after them and chowed down. I'm just trying to find a food that the fish will love and will keep them healthy. I fed everyone in the tank today frozen blood worms and they loved them. i guess i rotate threw 3-4 things. thanks
