Can I feed them prawns?
Hi everyone I'm new to this forum. I've read somewhere that you can feed freshwater tropicals on prawns, I like to give my fish a varied diet, lots of veggies etc and was wondering if anyone here feeds their fish on prawns or if anyone believes its beneficial to the fish.
what fish do you have. ?
i have fed prawns to my fish on the odd occasion.
Hi, Ive got 5 clown loaches a big plec, an upside down cat and some gouramis and neon tetras. I like feeding them new things but i dont want to give them anything that wont agree with them.
I believe the only downfall to prawns is that they have a really high salt content right?
If they are frozen I'm pretty sure you just have to thaw them and rinse them off really good.
I don't think your pleco would benefit from them though.
yeah i guess they would prefer a big chunk of
cucumber,like i said though,very rare treat,that's about it.
How big are your loaches? They might enjoy the prawn if they're decently sized. I don't think you'd need to go out of your way to feed prawns to the fish you listed, but if you're just experimenting and want to offer them a treat, I don't see that it could hurt anything. Just be sure to remove it if your fish don't eat it right away as it could add a substantial amount of ammonia to your tank when it starts to decay.
