thanks for the advice.  i have heard that fish should not be fed beef heart or
any mammalian protein, since they can't really digest it, and it causes tissue
degeration or fat accumulation in their bodies (but people do it anyway, they
seem to think it's the best food they can feed their fish).  i try to feed
them sea mollusks or shrimp sparingly, mostly because i don't have time to
chop up the food, so they get it at most once a week.
