Around my house ive been seeing a lot of insects and am wondering if my fish can eat them. Can anyone tell me if they can be used for live food?
The insects I've seen are:
-spiders(daddy longlegs and some smaller black ones with thick legs)
-ants (outside in my yard)
-and sometimes roly poly/pillbugs in my backyard
i have currently 5 neon tetras, a facy guppy (accidentally bought, seems to be fine), and 2 zebra danios. i plan to have a bushnose catfish, a few more tetras, 4 swordtails (1 male 3 female), and 2 kribs. Will these eat the insects? I don't think there are any farms near my house, so we should be fine.
Pesticides, fertilizers, and other toxins don't need to come from just farms. Many people use these things in their gardens and around their homes. What if that bug had walked through some chemical used to kill termites or roaches or walked through Raid whatever just next door before you caught him?
