feeding bugs from outside
Any reason not to feed ants? my angels seem to like them. I have lots of different ants here, is there any to avoid? I was just trying the sugar ants I think they are called (the ones that raid your kitchen) but may try some of the larger type. I do so much work to culture stuff indoors but I thought why not take advantage of the plentiful and zero maintainence cultures outside.

Thanks, you've just given me a thought. I've ants all over the garden during the spring/summer/autumn months. They are small, the basic ones that get everywhere. My hatchetfish would love them. Don't know why I didn't think of this before. When I had my frog and newt they regularly received flies and the occasional earthworm. Never thought of ants for the fish.
As long as you don't use any type of insecticide or chemical they could pick up, and I use nothing like that in the garden, I would think they should be fine.

To bad my darn apartment complex sprays a lot for bugs and to help the grass. Thats a great idea.

Going along with this them, what about roaches? The thread about the hissing roaches got me thinking

They are too big, you'd have to chop them up...eeuuwww!
