No commercially available formulated diet springs to mind. However,
using drosophila maggots would be a cheap source of food with a very
high lipid content.

Dear All,

I would not recommend letting Drosophila maggots getting
anywhere near a zebrafish facility. Unfortunately I cannot recommend an
alternative high fat feed, I can offer experience with a fly infested
fish lab, which is highly unpleasant and almost impossible to correct.
Hence why I would discourage flies.

Cheers and Best Wishes,
