Yes, that dog is a mixture of 2 coloured forms of the Australian Cattle Dog or Blue (and Red) Heeler. This is
an Australian breed, bred for their ability to jump on the cattle's backs and nip them into fences or other places that the farmer wants. This means that they are a breed requiring LOTS of exercise!
That piccy looks to me like a cross Blue Heeler with a Red Heeler (from the red around his face)/which makes him a purebred Heeler....Agreed, beautiful!
As for strange things to feed your pets, my German Shepherd luvs seaweed rice crackers and gingernut biscuits! Both things that she eyes me off over when I'm eating them! I find the seaweed a little unusual........for a dog!/when she was a pup she used to rip the fish flakes off the top of the tank and eat them, however!
As for fishtanks (to get back to topic), my ex used to put bits of tiny chicken in the tank for the Discus....NOT advised, as it spoiled the water and led to me needing to do a lot of water changing!..... These days I stick to standard Discus food blocks, which I tame them up with by feeding blocks to the smaller fish out of my gloved hand to give them a head start.
