Question What do you feed minnows?

I've set up an old aquarium to keep extra minnows alive between fishing trips. Does anyone know what to feed them? I have been feeding them regular flake fish food & I'm wondering if anything else would be better, cheaper, or help keep them alive longer?
Thanks,
JRB

I always went with the flake food. They will also eat bread but that will cloud up the aquarium real bad. Nightcrawlers might not be a bad option depending on the type of minnow. If they are chubs they will love nightcrawlers.

Just guessing...but mealworms or bloodworms would probably work. You can also get frozen brine shrimp at most pet food stores that would probably work.
