I have a question....
I am look at getting started with a new fish but i have had some people tell me to feed my new fish crickets. Live or the dried ones. Is this a common thing. Please get back to me before i do cause i want to make sure i am feeding my new fish what is best for them. Looking at getting some angel fish. if that helps.
No crickets. Some one is blowing smoke. lol. You could feed them flack foods. brine shrimp. blood worm. ect.
So crickets are a no. is that with just angel fish or alltogether
I wouldn't feed crickets to any type of fish. Mollies advice is good. I feed my fish a varied diet which includes: flake foods, sinking pellets and wafers, frozen bloodworms, beefheart, krill, daphnia, mysis, brine shrimp and also assorted fresh veggies.
I use to feed crickets to my archer's fish. Just as a treat. Just to watch how they eat in there enviroment. They spit there food out of the air. But i would not feed it as an every day supliment. Maybe crushed up crickets as a treat once a week.
I have lots of fish, but my archer is the only one that gets crickets. (as long as the archer beats the knight gobies to them)
lol archers are so cool!!!!!
The crickets wouldn't do any harm IMO, but like others said there are much better things to feed your fish and the crickets would be a poor choice as a main food source. Most fish will probably find whole crickets hard to eat do to there size.
As long as you feed a healthy main food source occasional treats don't matter. My eels get a main diet of worms, however treatwise they loved cooked meats- shrimp, fish(raw works too), chicken, beef, and other things -scrambled eggs, ham/cheese omelets. Likewise the fish are the clean up crew and love all these foods too.
I have seen some dryed crickets would this be ok vs. the live crickets as a treat or should i just stay away from crickets all together
