Tiger Barb Vs earn worm
 
Hi every one... This is my 1st post on this forum and I have just brought 8 Tiger Barbs.. Can I know that if they can eat earth worms from my garden :D/

Thanks in Advance.

Earthworms are fine as a treat, but not too often for fish as they are high in fat and protein. Wash them very well. And obviously only feed very small ones that the fish can easily handle. Or you can cut them up; some suggest freezing them first, then feeding the grated/chopped worms.

Mosquito larve as food
 
Byron, I live in No. Central FL and have the ability to breed mosquito larve. Is this something that I might feed to my tank?

Yes. Just make sure the fish eat them, or you'll have a house of biting mosquitoes.;-)
