My fish don't like ants
So I get home from work, and the first thing I do is feed my ravenous platies. I go to open the lid to drop in some flaky goodness, and I see an ant sitting right by the opening. I think I saw 2 ants in my house all of last summer, so this is not a good sign. Anyways, I decide to flick the sucker in the tank, because at this point the platies are going nuts waiting for food. I thought the ant would get devoured, but to my surprise the platies would try to take a bite, but the ant, still being alive would swipe at them. So I left it in there for 5 minutes, thinking the worst case the ant would sink and my cories would eat it. I come back, and the platies haven't touched it. Then I got paranoid and thought maybe the ant would make my platies sick, since I don't remember reading too much about people feeding ants to their fish. So I ended up taking it out. My next test will be a mosquito.
