Cichlids Eating Mealworms!?
Ok, well last night i was with my friend And i was playing X Box. I got up to feed my gecko's and looked into my breeding container for my mealworms. I said "Wow, what am i going to do with all these?" He replied "I know!" As he took a mealworm, than ran over to my 55 gallon convict cichlid tank and dropped it in. My largest female took it immediately and gobbled it up. Does anyone know if this could hurt her? She doesnt seem any different, so i dont think anything's wrong. I'm just a little freaked out cuz ive never heard of fish eating them before! :P
Check out my tanks. :)
3 Female Convict Cichlids
1 Male Convict Cichlid
1 Young Convict Cichlid About 1"
11 Convict Cichlid Fry
3 Platy's (Sunburst, Panda, Bumblebee)
1 Platy (Sunburst)
1 Male Molly (Dalmation)
1 Female Molly (Dalmation)
not sure if itll hurt her or not, maybe look up some info on the digestive tracs of convict cichlids, i belive the short tracks are plant eaters and the long tracks are meat eaters but that may be backwards cant remember.
My Cons LOVE mealworms as a weekly goody. usually It doesn't make it to halfway to the bottom before its vanished! For my smaller female and males I cut it in half and drop it down with a feeder claw so the big 7" male wont steal!
