Can I feed them prawns?

Hi everyone I'm new to this forum. I've read somewhere that you can feed freshwater tropicals on prawns, I like to give my fish a varied diet, lots of veggies etc and was wondering if anyone here feeds their fish on prawns or if anyone believes its beneficial to the fish.

cheers

Hi, Ive got 5 clown loaches a big plec, an upside down cat and some gouramis and neon tetras. I like feeding them new things but i dont want to give them anything that wont agree with them.

I believe the only downfall to prawns is that they have a really high salt content right?

If they are frozen I'm pretty sure you just have to thaw them and rinse them off really good.

I don't think your pleco would benefit from them though.

How big are your loaches? They might enjoy the prawn if they're decently sized. I don't think you'd need to go out of your way to feed prawns to the fish you listed, but if you're just experimenting and want to offer them a treat, I don't see that it could hurt anything. Just be sure to remove it if your fish don't eat it right away as it could add a substantial amount of ammonia to your tank when it starts to decay.
