Goldfish and Maggots
Our compost pile is completely infested with disgusting little maggots.
Assuming I could get over my disgust to somehow capture a few of them (98 percent sure that I won't be able to do that) could I feed them to my indoor aquarium fancy goldfish?
I know people who catch while things (like wild daphnia from the lake) and feed their fish.
I know others who belong to the same category as i do, which is not wanting to contaminate my tank with stuff like that (especially maggots who couldn't be bred in a more disgusting environment).
Interesting discussion: http://www.fishforums.net/index.php?...are-my-friend/
Yeah, that's my general thought as well. I thought that maybe it would be a little safer since the maggots aren't based out of an aquatic system. However, my microbe ecology knowledge is not particularly great. So, you know. I have no idea. Haha.
I read the first few lines of your linked thread. I am almost afraid to continue. :shock:
Maggots are fine but I'd rather feed my own goldfish the same maggots if they were bred from a controlled environment. I worry more about the possibility of contamination from toxic chemicals.
