There have been a couple of threads here about feeding worms to fish.
Has anybody ever fed their fish MAGGOTS? I know that fishing shops sell live tubs of them as bait - but would they be suitable for feeding?
And would they have any nutritional value?
hi kateyoup personally i would not feed my fish with them as i use them to go fishing but i have used squats which are like a maggot only smaller and i have only gave them to my goldfish and a little tench what i found in my net from a fishing trip. but you look at the size of a maggot and a guppy and start wondering how it will fit into its mouth. but like i said thats my personal opinon hpe its some use
Thanks Rogerlee. :)
i have fed my fish maggots , i just cut some of their body with scissors so the juices come out and then the tetras and my guppies seem to enjoy picking off them.
:shock: I could never touch a maggot. :shock:
maggots are different from mealworms... right?
I'm not too sure. I think perhaps maggots are bluebottle larvae (and are larger) and mealworms are beetle larvae. Somebody correct if I'm wrong.
From what I remember, Maggots are flies where Mealworms are beetles.
meal worms are beetle larvae and maggots are from the blubottle fly and squats are from little flys called midges and they are very small maggots
