This is a discussion on Feeding store-bought crickets within the Freshwater and Tropical Fish forums, part of the Freshwater Fish and Aquariums category; -->
Most of them come "gut-loaded", meaning they've been fed vitamins and calcium and stuff. Are they safe for my fish or no?...
Cuz I've got em for my tomato frog that we just got(or should I say hubbies frog but I get the task of feeding it apparently) but it being the only non-aquatic frog we have and having other stuff it should be fed too, I just don't see using up all of the crickets before they die(they come in one of those packages). Sooo, I figured I'd ask.
Yeah, I've seen bettas eat the really small ones (which I know my new one would love, yeah I seem to have acquired a lot of new animals lately). I just don't want to feed one to him if it's going to hurt him (obviously!!!!).
i feed my sevs whatever i find inside my hood lol loose cricket escapees from the firebellied tank, spiders, ants, you name it. those sevs eat damn near everything i put in there... im not worried about the crickets, but who knows. someone might post that crickets are made of radioactive poison grenades so whatever lol
I keep crickets to feed my leopard gecko, and used to chuck some into the tank for the sevs now and again. I never had any problems from doing so, but made sure that the ones I fed them weren't gut loaded.
